KillerStar have shared their new single and video Falling Through from the upcoming debut album.
The self-titled debut album will land on 1 March 2024 and is available for pre-order now.
KillerStar continue in the vein of their debut single Should’ve Known Better by putting modern touches in to classic harmonies, rock and alt-rock of the ’70s. They also draw on a team of musicians known for their work with David Bowie – Mike Garson Earl Slick, Mark Plati, Gail Ann Dorsey, Tim Lefebvre, Emm Gryner and Donny McCaslin.
Falling Through marks Rob Fleming and James Sedge’s second single, and takes a different form from the version which will feature on the album. This version marks a remix as an alternative version by Mark Plati, one of David Bowie’s key collaborators.
Speaking about the track Rob Flemming said, “Falling Through is about a moment in time and finding tranquillity and taking in the surroundings, the ocean, sky, sun. The song builds and takes a left turn with Donny McCaslin providing soaring saxophone, full of emotion.”
Rob Fleming (vocals, guitars, synths) and James Sedge (drums) formed KillerStar to express their love of timeless music ranging from the primeval rock n’ roll of the early 1970s to contemporary indie. The array of Bowie collaborators arose partly by design, but mostly by chance. Having recorded a set of demos, Rob asked Emm Gryner to contribute vocals, who, in turn, suggested he should contact Earl Slick. Step-by-step, one Bowie alumni led to another, resulting in Bowie’s spirit sparkling throughout KillerStar’s cocktail of earthy rock and nightclub glamour. The album was produced by Rob and James, mixed by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers), with digital mastering by Joe La Porta and vinyl mastered by Miles Showell atAbbey Road Studios.
