Monday 20th December 2010 sees Sheffield four-piece Starlings launch their cosmic sound with the release of their debut single 'Weight In Gold', making them ones to watch in 2011.

Influenced by the song writing and production of 80's greats Simple Minds, Heaven 17 and more prominently Talk Talk, Starlings infuse 90's dance bass lines with tripped-out dub guitars and psychedelic choruses from front man Justin Robson, they have already built a loyal fan base in their home city and now look to take their carefully crafted 'guitars + synths' sound as far as possible.

Having been taken under the production wing of arch psychonaut and cosmic remix king Richard Norris (The Grid, Time & Space Machine and Beyond The Wizards Sleeve), Starlings debut single is perfectly sparse with electronics and trippy guitars creating the perfect platform for Robson's distinctive vocals to shine.

'Weight In Gold' is backed with 3 remixes of the title-track, by Starkey, Drums Of Death and cosmic disco bloggers The Bicep DJ's.

Hard edged 'street bass' maverick Starkey's dub step mix is already gathering high praise, following his recent work including mixes for Foals, Tempa T and Kano whilst Peaches remixer, Drums of Death has also worked his distorted signature sound onto the track to create a dance floor monster.

Having recently played on the Radio 1 Dj Kissy Sell Out 'San City High Tour' and more shows planned before the end of the year, Starlings are a band you must not ignore!
