Shimmering Stars

It's not hard to like Shimmering Stars. The Vancouver trio is one of those rare pop bands that can get their instruments precisely placed on that twinge muscle deep inside the human heart, and they do it with murder fantasies in the walls: “Walking down the street / I wanna kill everyone I see… In my heart, is a violence.” It's somewhere you've travelled many times: the landmarks all look succinctly west coast and dreamy, and unless you're made of stone or synthetic beats, it never really gets old.

Shimmering Stars, “I'm Gonna Try”

Shimmering Stars, “Nervous Breakdown”

They have an LP out on Hardly Art called Violent Hearts.
