The best kept secret in music

Press


Brainchild of local DJ/singer Jason Herring, ex-of Moonburn
and Latino Chrome, The Interstellars mine the same trippy, anesthetized outer-
space vein as the above bands, but with more of an electronic, dub-influenced
sound. The electronic backing seems to suit Herring’s emotive vocal styling
better-to that end, the band has two excellent new EPs out, Daydreaming
and Know By Touching. Daydreaming is a particular favorite, a nice blend of
emo and atmospheric, but both are worth checking out.

River Euphrates |The Interstellars

A collective of some of the brightest musicians on the scene in Charlotte, NC,
The Interstellars offer an inventive deconstruction that centers around the vocals of Fetchin’Bones/Sugarsmack diva Hope Nichols,and Jason Herring, member of Latino Chrome and Moonburn. The Interstellars knock the tempo down to a pleasant groove, but layer enough guitar and saxophone chaos on top to hold true to the spirit of the pixies’ original.

Bio

The Interstellars, from Charlotte, NC, have ambitiously advanced the cause of modern rock since their 1999 debut “River Euphrates,” appearing on the LifeLike Records tribute to The Pixies: “Pixies F**kin ’ Die!”. Originally a studio project building from
loops and samples, The Interstellars have morphed into a live band with a totally unique sound, featuring drums/percussion, guitar, bass, saxophone, flute, keyboards, and vocals. With help from visual fx artist Karen Kirby, aka wholegraingoodness, The Interstellars create an engaging multimedia presentation that
consistently amazes audiences with its power, emotional dynamics, and sheer audio/visual intensity.

The Interstellars' first two releases, “This Close To Venus E.P.” and “Echoes E.P.” showcase the band’s roots in incidental music, psychedelic rock, sampling, and electronica. 2001 brought The Interstellars two more releases: the “Know By Touching E.P.” and the “Daydreaming ” CD5, revealing the band’s knack for inventive songwriting, creative studio production, and seemingly effortless induction of altered states. The Interstellars are constantly attracting new fans, as evident in their inclusion of Conduit’s “Echoes ” remix “Leggo My Echoes ” on the “Listen N.U.D.E.” trance compilation. “Digital Dogs ”, an upcoming independent film, will feature two tracks from The Interstellars as well.

The Interstellars plan to continue the only way they know how: constant writing, recording, live shows, and grassroots promotion throughout North America and Europe.
