Brooklyn trio Dead Stars is a sonic throwback to the ’90s with a modern twist, blending elements of rock, pop, and grunge to create a large, resonant sound full of memorable hooks, melodic vocals, and plenty of guitar solos. Having been compared to iconic acts like Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, and Pavement, the band has won over fans with their raucous live show. They’re gearing up to release their new EP, High Gain, June 4th via Uninhabitable Mansions, a label founded by fellow Brooklyn band Radical Dads.

EP track “Fractured” embodies Dead Stars’ signature sound with heavy, energetic guitar, driving percussion, and a chorus that explodes with electric energy. You can download the “Fractured” MP3 here and you’re encouraged to share!
