Press


"Stars EP Release"

"The new Stars of Track and Field EP, You Came Here For Sunset Last Year, is huge. It's mechanical poetry. The song "Arithmatik" alone is better than anything New York or England has sent us in a long time." - Willamette Week


"Ep Realized"

"Their magnificent new EP seethes with longing and sadness, with gloomy electronic beats backing Kevin Calaba's soaring vocals." - Portland Tribune


"New Ep"

"Stars of Track and Field's new EP features "With You" a lovely realization of their new glitch meets grandeur ambitions." - The Portland Mercury


"Seattle Show"

"Never Heavy or ponderous sounding, Stars of Track and Field are a band worth taking a chance on."
- The Stranger

Bio

Employing machines to relay bass notes, drum sounds and samples, Portland Oregon's Stars of Track and Field deliver a hypnotic mix of deconstructed anthemic guitar rock with icy digital precision.
Stars of Track and Field's transformation from four peice indie rock to three piece digital pop is fully realized on their devastatingly beautiful EP "you came here for sunset last year." Produced alongside Tony Lash (Dandy Warhols, Eliot Smith) and Jeff Saltzman (Stephen Malkmus, Sunset Valley), the bands maturation is evident as songs soar through dense, flushed out phrasings then transition into the cool of digital beats. Highlighting the E.P with raw performances and wanderlust harmonies, Stars of Track and Field's urgent and somber lyrical sensibilities set the mood for their stunning introductory recording.
Matching their music to stunning imagery and a muted light show; a Stars of Track and Field concert transforms the stage into an installation of both art and sound. Exhaustive individual performances have helped build the bands reputation for a frenetic live show. This energy has contributed to live pairings as varied as Carissa's Wierd, The Long Winters and The Turn On's.
