Friday, May 27, 2022 – Atlanta-based glam punk rockers Starbenders have dropped their new single “If You Need It” and the accompanying music video via Sumerian Records. Speaking about the inspiration behind the track, Kimi Shelter commented:
“The band recorded ‘If You Need It’ during a very difficult time in our lives. The sands were shifting beneath our feet as we stood in the studio. The sentiment of the song is captured in the chorus, “I’ve got love if you need it, drugs to keep it even. I can’t take the pain.” It’s impossible to fix people and that doesn’t mean we didn’t love them enough or do enough. Pain is a dignity that we alone have to transmute. The result is a metallic clash between feathers and switchblades.”
Prior to today, Starbenders released their track Seven White Horses, as well as their deluxe album “Love Potions (Zodiac Deluxe)” which has five additional songs captured during the making of their full-length debut “Love Potions”, including a Celtic-tinged, mandolin-laced interpretation of their single “BITCHES BE WITCHES” along with a trip-hop, nineties inspired remix of “Push”. Watch the music video for “If You Need It” here or at the link below.
