Dead Stars’ sophomore LP ‘Bright Colors’ streaming in full via BrooklynVegan

Dead Stars

Dead StarsDead Stars’ sophomore LP, ‘Bright Colors,’ comes out tomorrow (3/4) via the band’s own Weird Tree Records. You can stream the full album now via BrooklynVegan, and it’s available for pre-order (digitally & on limited edition cassette) via Bandcamp.

Full of crunchy, fuzzed-out guitars, catchy pop melodies, and big, explosive choruses, ‘Bright Colors’ features the kind of hook-filled indie rock that brings to mind ’90s favorites like Teenage Fanclub, The Lemonheads, and Weezer. From the bouncy guitar lines and heavy-hitting chorus of Calm Punk to the laid-back, bummer vibes of Unpopular — the new album provides a heavy dose of ’90s nostalgia while still managing to sound fresh & modern.
