Dead Stars stream new single “Unpopular”

Dead Stars stream new single "Unpopular", from forthcoming release 'Bright Colors'

Dead Stars’ sophomore LP, Bright Colors, is due out March 4th on the band’s own Weird Tree Records, and today you can hear the album track “Unpopular”, which is now streaming via Soundcloud.

Having drawn comparisons to ’90s favorites like Teenage Fanclub, Weezer, and The Lemonheads, there’s no denying that there’s a nostalgic quality to Dead Stars’ sound, but the Brooklyn-based trio manages to keep things fresh & modern. Crunchy, fuzzed-out guitars pair with catchy pop melodies and the band’s approach to songwriting.

Dead Stars play a record release show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on March 4th and will be touring down to SXSW next month — see below for a list of upcoming shows (more dates TBA.)
