The Electric Stars
The Electric Stars are unlike any other band on 'The Scene' right now ! They have managed to perfect a trick, that all the great bands have up their collective sleeve. That is, the ability to soak up all the best music, from the best bands, from any era & spit it out as original tunes ! They confidently swagger like The Stones & hold an audience like Kasabian. The songs can be as whimsical as The Kinks or violent like The Sex Pistols. The Electric Stars are a Psychedelic Rock n Roll Speedball bursting with Glamtastic guitars, Hippy lyrics & drenched in Soul.
The band formed in 2011, as a gang of like minded freaks, from the remnants of various Mancunian combo's. The Mission: Original Rock n Roll that inspires !
They signed to Detour Records in February 2012, released a single in March & the debut album 'Sonic Candy Soul' in September ! They have played with the likes of The Charlatans, Kaiser Chiefs, Macy Gray & Jefferson Airplane. The album has been featured in countless magazines with glowing reviews, even making the Top 12 of 2012 in 'Scootering Magazine' alongside Paul Weller. A second album is due for release late 2014 & the band have just filmed a video for the latest single in Estonia.
The future is Star shaped for these Manc Soul Brothers !
