The Starkins hail from The UK and play a brand of high-octane indie with a believe that guitars should play tunes, that tunes should make you wanna bounce and that chorus's should make you wanna bounce higher!
The Starkins first single ROUNDABOUT was released in February 2014 on Fierce Panda / Club Fandango and was showcased by Steve Lamacq on his BBC Radio 6 Recommends show together with BBC Introducing and numerous international Radio Shows. Their second single - THE NIGHT is being self released on 28th October
In a matter of months The Starkins have generated impressive worldwide acclaim through a handful of raw, home made videos that perfectly capture the bands camaraderie and energy.
Over 400,000 YouTube hits and 11,000 subscribers gives some clue as to their potential as does the growing multitude of international fan feedback evidenced on their YouTube Chanel.
However, The Starkins live to play live. In a world of overproduction they have gained accolades from producers, promoters, DJ's, and of course fans, as being a stirring and joyous live experience. Playing over 200 gigs in the last two years they have enticed audiences in venues as diverse as a former nuclear bunker in Norway to the UK festival stages.
