Starflyer 59 - Changing of the Guard

There’s a new Starflyer 59 album on the way, which means 3 things: I get excited, I talk about it a lot, and people ask me who they are and what they should listen to for a Starflyer introduction.

Their sound has changed a lot over the years, from the debut album Silver, and it’s My Bloody Valentine-ish droning guitars to straighter rock, via New Order and Electronica. It’s hard to pick out an introduction playlist, but I’ve had a go, and you can listen to it on Spotify.

If you do have a listen, ‘Everyone but Me’ is my favourite track of all time, and Silver is in my top 5 favourite albums of all time.
