New York’s Been Stellar kick off UK tour at The Joiners this week

New York’s Been Stellar kick off UK tour at The Joiners this week

Been Stellar  have shared a third track, Sweet,  from their forthcoming debut Scream From New York, NY album out on 21 June via their new label Dirty Hit. Catch them on the first date of their UK tour this week (May 15) in Southampton at the legendary Joiners.

Scream From New York, NY captures an image of ‘20s New York that’s unrelenting and harsh, where tenderness is a finite resource burned up by the machinery of the city and human connection is a luxury product. Leaving behind the driving shoegaze of their early recordings, the NYC-based five piece tap into the disaffected sound and spirit of New York luminaries such as Sonic Youth and Interpol, and the nihilistic, yearning cool of Iceage and Bends-era Radiohead.

Been Stellar recently supported The 1975 on a major European tour and will return to the UK and the EU throughout the summer before heading back to the States for their Lollapalooza debut.
