Debut EP on So Young records from NYC's Been Stellar. Been Stellar is what you get when you leave the youth alone in a metropolis; they grow up. They make noise. Their songs are formed and lived somewhere on Broadway, on Hester, on 34th, in Union Square, on the bridge, in the gutter, and under your shoe. The trivial street scenes lipsticked by well-loved decades are fully recognized in Been Stellar’s hail of guitar tones and insistent lyrical earnesty. Crackly, bright and distorted - stories of violence, love, and a new, un-glamorous, New York City.
Each member so distinctly themselves, it must be assumed that such a diverse and unlikely gang were drawn tight together in their first year of university by nothing short of serendipitous fortune and a shared, waggish sense of humor, reflected at the heart of the lyrics and hardened over years of shared experience in the city’s lavish rigidity and urban decay.
They are a band of friends - sharing, crying, fighting, and kissing - wreaking havoc together and laughing like how only the jaunty youth can afford to, truly bonded by an inexplicable yet palpable earnesty in their mission to create music that sounds like them. Their distinctiveness forms their crackling bleary sound, each adding a tone and a limb, melding together their individual styles and predilections into a melodic and raucous wall that could only have ever taken shape in a specific space: New York; and a specific time: right now.
