The extremely limited debut EP on So Young records from NYC’s Been StellarBeen Stellar is what you get when you leave the youth alone in a metropolis; they grow up. They make noise. Their songs are formed and lived somewhere on Broadway, on Hester, on 34th, in Union Square, on the bridge, in the gutter, and under your shoe. The trivial street scenes lip sticked by well-loved decades are fully recognized in Been Stellar’s hail of guitar tones and insistent lyrical earnesty. Crackly, bright and distorted – stories of violence, love, and a new, un-glamorous, New York City.

NYC rockers Been Stellar take Larry Clark’s iconic cult movie as the basis for a scuzzy slacker anthem that opts out of trying to make sense of the world and, instead, embraces the chaos.

Following the release of mega single ‘Manhattan Youth’ last month, Been Stellar share their debut, self-titled EP this Friday.

The Brooklyn five-piece have been generating some serious heat in the UK and have just wrapped up their first UK headline tour, gathering what might go down in history as the coolest looking bunch of people ever recorded in one room for their headline show at The Windmill. They hit the road again in November, supporting Just Mustard around North America.
