“(On Unbelievable) The folky guitar sounds are the night time in woodland, passing by gently and quickly before the sun begins slowly to rise up with twinkling keys before the bass kicks in and the world wakes up. Percussion crashes as the city hustles and bustles with people and traffic busily going about their business, the tranquillity of the night a distant memory as the tune pulses and explodes with light and colour.”
“Aside from their new track “Unbelievable”, another Starar track that stands out to me is their holiday number called “Tennessee Christmas.””
“Starar has been releasing music for over four years and has been making changes to their sound for each release. It might just be that they have been trying to find that right sound, being creative and true to the music they were being inspired by at the time their music was written.”
“Within “Unbelievable,” rather than at a set of songs, the contemporary aspect is primarily in the vocals, while the “uniqueness” of the band’s sound is primarily in the mixing. Particularly in the final minute, the mixing provides a choppiness that is not so significant as to disrupt the melodic feel of the song, but does set the sound apart from the norm.”
