“It’s such a wonderful thing when a new band pops up that is so exciting, so impossible to ignore, that not only do they stand out from the pack, they positively leap out of it and hang off of your ears. Atlanta’s Starbenders did exactly that.”

Atlanta glam punk four piece, Starbenders have dropped a stunning and thought provoking animated music video for their mesmerizing new single “Push“. The track is lifted from the band’s critically acclaimed album, “Love Potions” which was released back in February of this year on Sumerian Records. “Push” is available now as part of a bundle featuring the original single and an alternative remix.

With quietly seductive vocal lines from frontwoman Kimi Shelter that slither around the steady heartbeat of the rhythm section, “Push” is a trip hop inspired incantation reminiscent of 90s era genre pioneers Portishead and Massive Attack. Speaking on their latest release, Starbenders bassist Aaron Lecesne shares:
“In a world where human contact is forbidden, is love our rebellion? This video tugs at the darkest corners of our imaginations. It’s like the monster under the bed, or in the closet, or on TV. It might not be real, but it could be.”
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 and guitarist 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 album sees STARBENDERS moving in a more adventurous and slightly experimental direction.
Open your minds and ready your souls, STARBENDERS are coming for both.
