Album artwork for Been Stellar by Been Stellar
Album artwork for Been Stellar by Been Stellar

Debut EP on So Young records from NYC's Been Stellar. Been Stellar is what you get when you leave the youth alone in a metropolis; they grow up. They make noise. Their songs are formed and lived somewhere on Broadway, on Hester, on 34th, in Union Square, on the bridge, in the gutter, and under your shoe. The trivial street scenes lipsticked by well-loved decades are fully recognized in Been Stellar’s hail of guitar tones and insistent lyrical earnesty. Crackly, bright and distorted - stories of violence, love, and a new, un-glamorous, New York City.

Lead track “My Honesty” is widescreen, main-character, indie-rock writ large: it is the sound of a band seizing their own future and cutting through the tension. Erupting out of the speakers, “My Honesty” then finds a steady pulse - tightly coiled interlocking guitars shift between loud-quiet dynamics, re-building the tension only to smash through it once again. It is a song that feels destined to catapult the band onto bigger stages - a truly anthemic track that finds space in the noise.

For fans of Daydream Nation era Sonic Youth, Pavement and the Wedding Present.
