The galactic sprawler, “Star Of” closes out their latest EP, Jelly. Melty with bleary guitars, the reverb laced track is effusive with a quaint aura. Rippled vibrato and twitchy hooks, the track reaches back a few decades to familiar shoegaze territory. With its swirling wall of haze and sub-layer of pop, “Star Of” is the ideal song for your interstellar dream(s).
