Hear Starlight Girls’ Nocturnal, Jamie Stewart-Produced ‘7×3′
From an upcoming glow-in-the-dark single
Brooklyn’s Starlight Girls put out a five-song, self-titled EP of noirish, ’60s-steeped indie pop last year, and their next release should be even better suited to the nighttime hours. This summer they’re set to issue a new 7-inch single, produced by Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart and pressed as a limited-edition picture disc featuring glow-in-the-dark images of constellations. One of the two songs on the 7-inch will be “7×3,” which sees Starlight Girls moving deeper into dubwise atmospheres, with smoky vocals that hint toward ’90s trip-hop. Peaking Lights’ psychedelic grooves and TEEN’s fluttery retro-pop also come to mind as reference points for a record that will be undeniably luminous.
