Ringo Deathstarr embrace the musical gloom.
Formed in 2005 and comprised of Elliott Frazier on guitars and vocals, Alex Gehring on bass and vocals, and Daniel Coborn on drums, local band Ringo Deathstarr create a steady dose of shoegaze. Unabashedly transporting the gray tones of 80’s alternative rock into a contemporary haze, Deathstarr’s solid rhythms and layered guitars are coated with a layer of distant and dreamy vocals. The band’s latest effort, 2014’s God’s Dream EP, moved between a pop-infused, textured softness and churning, propulsive rock, each moment covered in a familiar wash of distortion. Ringo Deathstarr has since been at work on their new and third full-length album set to be released in November.
Ringo Deathstarr will be performing live at Solstice Fest this Saturday, June 20th, and you can stream their music right here on KUTX.
