Listen Up: Names Of Stars – "Siren"


Names Of Stars are an LA-based foursome that really make you work for a chorus. Bad thing? Nah. Great thing. Consider the sweet spot that unfolds at the heart of “Siren,” mpfree from their forthcoming debut LP: it’s simple, insistent and galvanizing all at once. What initially appears to be a straight-ahead indie rock plod becomes a jam that’s completely and totally open with you. Cherish the song that turns itself inside-out and back again, dudes.

    hmmm – yeah does feel pretty typically indie for that first half. its like beach house mixed with grizzly bear soaked in Andrew Birds urine (but in a good way).
