Sheffield quartet The Starkins are regulars on the pages of Backseat Mafia already, and quite rightly so, with their sparkling, swaggering indie rock. We loved their last single Papercuts, along with a whole host of important sounding people and websites, and now they’re back with a new single, Wasted.
It opens with this almost eerie guitar work, before it bursts into its indie rock life, as it trips along, becoming increasingly messy and noises as it goes. There’s something of the 90’s about the indie rock music they produce, driving and melodic as it is, and while there’s also a little bit of the Arctic Monkeys in there (nothing wrong with that) these boys are definitely discovering a sound of their own.
The band have released a new video for the record. check it out, here.
