Psychedelic glam rockers, Starbenders release their second single, “Holy Mother” since signing with Sumerian Records. “Holy Mother” is a bonafide rock n roll rager of a track that crescendos to full on punk fury once the first chorus hits. Complete with pounding drums and fuzzy distorted riffs, the new single sets the stage perfectly for an other-worldly performance from front woman Kimi Shelter.
Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Starbenders are the half way home for misunderstood misfits, fringers and glam punks. Front-woman, Kimi Shelter and her gang have concocted a perfect alchemic blend of androgynous rock and roll power with ‘stuck-in-your-brain’ pop melodies.
Shelter began working with producer, Nico Consantine (Lady Gaga, Program The Dead) in 2014 who encouraged her to start a band. Aaron Lecesne was the first call Shelter made. The duo were best of friends and had intense musical crushes on each other. The genesis of Starbenders took form. Guitarist Kriss Tokaji, entered the scene in early 2015 after the band witnessed him laying waste to a guitar at a shitty house party in the middle of nowhere. The dream line up crystallized with the entrance of drummer Emily Moon.
