Starover Blue

Rock, Pop
Location: Portland

The nostalgic tones of a Juno-106 combine with ambient layers, sparkling guitars and airy, bittersweet vocals to define Starover Blue’s sophomore LP Ordinary Magic. Much like Spacegeist, their 2016 debut, the record is a synth-saturated opus, drawing from classical music, dream pop and folk, as well as sci-fi and dystopian fiction. Tracks “Janeway,” “A B Y,” “Anemone” and “The Howl Makes No Sound” showcase the five-piece’s penchant for textural experimentation and subtle odd meters. For fans of Cocteau Twins, Wye Oak, Beach House, Low Roar and The Antlers, listen to Ordinary Magic now.
