A violence I cannot dispel

The shimmering sun
Hype works in mysterious ways. I’ve heard very little about Shimmering Stars on a local level, but the Vancouver band has started getting coverage from some of the big guys. It’s well-deserved — just listen to the dreamy slab of of retro pop that is “I’m Gonna Try.”

The song has a video, which you can see here. Most of it was shot a few minutes down the road from my apartment. I have to cross that bridge when I go downtown in about an hour.

This tune comes from a four-song 7″ EP, which you can stream here.
