Atlanta-based glam punk rockers Starbenders have today dropped a new single and music video, “Seven White Horses” (via Sumerian Records). Speaking on today’s release, Kimi Shelter shares:
“The road has a way of putting you in the zone and realizations come to visit. The words of Seven White Horses rushed in during one of these road-inspired epiphanies. The song’s about rebirth, where you have to leave things behind, killing off your weaker self to rise.”
This week also marks the one year anniversary of “Love Potions (Zodiac Deluxe)” which has five additional songs captured during the making of their full-length debut “Love Potions”, including a Celtic-tinged, mandolin-laced interpretation of their single “BITCHES BE WITCHES” along with a trip-hop, nineties inspired remix of “Push”. Watch the video for “Seven White Horses” below and be sure to watch this space for more Starbenders news coming soon.
There really isn’t anyone else out there doing what Starbenders have been since forming in 2014: The intoxicating combination of ’70s glitter and ’80s glam with new wave and new romantic, seduced into this new decade by four thrilling musicians and, in frontwoman Kimi Shelter, one of the most exciting songwriters in contemporary rock & roll.
The band is completed by bassist Aaron Lecesne, guitarist Kriss Tokaji, and drummer Emily Moon. The band’s latest album, “Love Potions”, sees Starbenders moving in a more adventurous and slightly experimental direction.
