SOTW: Stars

WEEK 5

This euphoria-inducing song is so infectious that it reminds of some new-age indie theme for the Peanuts comics. Seriously, watch this video (on mute, obviously) with “Stars” playing in the background and tell me I’m wrong.

“Linus and Lucy” comparisons aside, “Stars” follows a simple formula but certainly shines. It’s a strong piece from a NYC-based quartet which knows their audience well.

I’d also like to give personal props for pulling of the rare feat of making the keyboardist the melodic centerpiece of the band.
