Thank you The RingMaster Review for the detailed review of Stellarscope’s ‘Standing in the shadow of your ghost’ “Evocatively invasive and seductive from its first to last breath, Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost is the new album from US outfit Stellarscope. Shaped by rousing yet darkly suggestive rhythms and driven by emotion strapped melodies within cinematically hued atmospherics, the release consumes as it ignites ears and imagination from pretty much its opening and seemingly intimate contemplation of “the pain of loss and the fear of an uncertain future.””

“No words can express how difficult it was to disclose the album that is “Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost” by the Stellarscope. It was mind mindbogglingly how well of an album this turned out. For it is so well rounded to being such a crafted piece of effort, there are so many elements in play. You can a douse of the past era’s of the 80’s, 90’s, to other depths of the world, Britain’s pop and punk scene out of the U.K. regions for one. For another you just get one of those albums that just leaves you in wonder and wisdom.”- Natalie Perez

First review of our new album “Shades of sadness and sorrow” by Sphere Music​. Album to be released March 3, 2015
“Nostalgia Kisses The Future with Shades of Sadness and Sorrow by Stellarscope​
-Yup, nothing could represent the power of indie music that Philadelphia’s own Stellarscope. They are back with a new album called Shades of Sadness and Sorrow. They are improving on the sound that defines them as a band: a combination of 80’s post punk, dream pop and Gothic atmosphere.”

Under the Wire releases Everything Haunts MePosted on February 2, 2015 by BAXTER LABATOS Leave a commentBand: Under the WireAlbum: Everything Haunts Me.Songs: I am nothing/Oceans are none/Drifter now/Down/Black out/Melancholy/Self Medicated.What you can expect from every Under the Wired releases is the electricity that flows through each song. There is the freshness yet the nostalgic not to the great bands of the 80s. I like to imagine them as a band that continue to carry the torch of great music without sacrificing their credibility to the evil of mainstream pop.Everything Haunts Me is the new EP, which is their second, and contains 7 tracks. I am nothing has a mellow style with chilled beats. The fullness of the music is done by layering. Under the Wire is comprised of two people: Tom Lugo and Jason Ellis. I am nothing reminds me of old This Mortal Coil. Remember the 4AD project headed by Ivo Watts-Russell in the 80s? I am not sure if UTW have embraced the 4AD credo but I can sense a bit of that in this EP.Oceans are None is explosively beautiful. I haven’t heard something like this in ages. The only artists that come to mind are Peter Gabriel and early Sarah McLachlan. The beats are seductive. The vocals are really awesome. Like the first EP, the tunes from Everything Haunts Me showcase a distinct guitar style that shows its loyalty to the dream pop genre.Either it’s The Cure or Fiction Factory, Drifter now nods on these bands. Two thumbs up to the keyboards. And since I am not a lyrics guy I paid more attention to the sound effects than the stories behind the songs. But if you want to know what they are all about then I will tell you. They deal with either unrequited love, despair, loneliness, inner conflict-the stuff of Gothic rock. For some reason, Under the Wire makes depressing themes sound like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.There’s Down-a kind of suspense and moody tune in the vein of Siouxsie and the Banshees.  Blackout behind jangles with Bauhaus inspired chords and distorted drums. Melancholy has an ethereal style that reminds me of early Dead Can Dance and at times it’s Joy Division. Self medicated closes the EP and I think it is the most cinematic track in this EP.Under the Wire continues to challenge the status quo of music, as thesetwo musicians write and record tunes that you can never -and will never-hear again in alternative rock.
