Starlight Girls - BTR Live Studio [ep155]
Starlight Girls are a Brooklyn band specializing in downtempo pop and sultry storytelling - but not exclusively. Drawing on inspiration from the best of all your favorite musical decades (20s, 50s, 60s, 80s, etc) and genres (indie rock, french pop, surf, new wave) the Starlight Girls bring a spooky style all their own to a sort of modern day cabaret sound. Also, they make the most tasteful use of a flute this side of Jethro Tull. With a 7” collab with Xiu Xiu imminent and a debut LP due next year, it looks like we’ll be hearing much more from the group in the coming months.
Featured song: “Inhibitionist”
A glow in the dark collaborative 7” with Xiu Xiu frontman Jamie Stewart will be released in November. A full length LP is due in 2013.
