Starlight Girls and the best Halloween ever

Starlight Girls

Starlight Girls sound like the band that should probably be playing your Halloween party, drinking all your pumpkin ale, and stealing all your candy. They play songs that sound like something straight off the soundtrack from a ‘60s B-movie. Think the kind of songs Soledad Miranda would dance around to in a Jesus Franco flick (Count Dracula for one). Some more musical references: French pop songs by France Gall or Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, the dark surf instrumental “Munsters” theme song by Jack Marshall, fuzzed-out Nuggets like The Seeds or The Music Machine’s “Trouble,” and even Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald. Somehow, in five songs on one EP, The Starlight Girls conjure up all this and more.
