Ronettes-inspired Starlight Girls spin-off to drop 'My Baby and Me' EP in February

While Brooklyn indie-poppers Starlight Girls updated their retro sound last year, their drummer Karys Rhea dwells in an even deeper past with PEP. As the story goes, she started her side-project (a duo on album and a sextet live) after she heard "Runaround Sue" playing over a retail P.A. and subsequently went on a downloading binge, devouring all of the '50s and '60s malt-shop pop she could find.

Her devotion pays off with My Baby and Me, an EP due out February 11 that features "Stephen," a Ronettes-owing heartbreaker about that titular cad. Above, you can see the song's video, in which director Jonathan Phelps throws his own vintage variety show to ... well, variable results.

PEP, My Baby and Me track list:

1. "My Baby and Me"
2. "Stephen"
3. "I Met a Boy"
4. "Be That Girl"
