Stars In Stereo Album Review

sins

I had the pleasure of reviewing this self-titled album by Stars In Stereo and I really dig it. They are a quintet that formed in Los Angeles, California with a female on lead vox. Her name is Bec Hollcraft and she’s a really talented vocalist. On lead guitar is Jordan McGraw and  on rhythm guitar is Frogs McCormick. Slapping the bass is Justin Siegal and on percussion is Drew Langan. The album starts off with a song called “The Broken.” This song has awesome guitar tones that blend together as the beats flow. The lyrics will definitely get you tapping your feet along to the beat. “The Broken” also features some cool techniques used in a form of music called dubstep. It has just enough to balance it out and sound good; this also adds to making the sound different from a lot of other bands. “Violence” is a song that follows, starting off with a unique strumming pattern. It has lyrics that can be easily be recited by fans which leads to something bands enjoy, crowd participation. The next song to follow that is “All Together.” This song features a lot of cool effects from programming tools. It reminds me of some of the original material Paramore wrote. It’s noticeable that Bec has similar vocal capabilities to that of Haley Williams. I’ve listened to this album track by track, and you can definitely just play it from beginning to end without skipping. Each song is different in its own way while still remaining to flow together well on the album.

For Fans of : Paramore, Eyes Set To Kill, VersaEmerge, Tonight Alive, Picture Me Broken. I highly suggest you check those bands out as well as Stars In Stereo. This band definitely has some potential!
