The unmistakable tones of a Juno 106, both expansive and nostalgic, combine with ambient layers, sparkling guitars, and bittersweet vocals to define Portland band Starover Blue.
After meeting in the music department at San Jose State in 2007, founding members Kendall and Dirk Sallay-Milotz began their musical partnership and quickly became inseparable. Live, they pull from a multi-faceted discography of experimental dream pop and have served as local support for a spectrum of bands including The Velvet Teen and Orenda Fink.
ABOUT THE BAND'S NEW EP, MONEYSTEALER
Taking shape after the passing of Kendall's father, Moneystealer is an intimate portrait of familial loss. The four-song collection features more subdued orchestration than the band's previous release Spacegeist, signifying both a perspective shift and a new Portland-based lineup. Where Spacegeist looked outward, exploring themes of technology and dystopia, Moneystealer looks inward, reflecting on the landscape of personal grief, finding ways to celebrate life in spite of mourning. Released August 20, 2017.
