New Stellastarr* – “Warchild”

After last spring’s co-headlining tour with Editors, the boys and girl of Stellastarr* made a brief appearance to DJ the Movable Hype show at Spiegeltent before retreating quietly to Brooklyn, where they’ve been hard at work on album number three. But by way of New Year’s gift, they offer up a demo of a tune slated for the Harmonies For The Haunted follow up, and we love gifts. From their Myspace blog:

Since we’ve been laying low and writing for the past few months, we figured we would bring in the new year with a song we demoed recently. It is tentatively tited ‘warchild’ and we will re-record it later in the year for our next record.

But for now, we thought it would be fun to throw something a little more bare bones up on the page. It’s a rough recording, but we liked it that way.

It’s another dose of stylish and catchy post-punk and sounds surprisingly well-realized for a demo (although the C section could use some more polish), and should hold you Stella fans over for a few. Stream it here, and if you like, make your way to see ‘em road test the new next month.
