As described by New Silver Girl frontman Olli Happonen, “Starlight City’ is a danceable rock tune about prime movers behind the words and the social theatre of love affairs. A shoestring euphoria on the dirty alleys of Kallio in Helsinki.”

The debut album from New Silver Girl drops late October via Soliti. The album was recorded in Berlin’s famed Hansa Studios and produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor, Hinds).

“There’s something polished and glossy about the tune, perhaps due to producer Gordon Raphael, who also worked with the Strokes and Hinds. He knows his way around taking the gritty details and turning them into rock n’ roll gems; this is another such occasion.” Austin Town Hall

“The song is a eminently danceable jolt of glam-inflected rock and roll, and we think it fully justifies our anticipation of the album.” When You Motor Away

“Pistä samaan mankeliin Hurriganes, Booker T & MG’s, Jesus & Mary Chain, Strokes ja Primal Scream, lisää vähän vilpittömyyttä, primitiivisyyttä ja historiansa tuntevaa tyylitajua: New Silver Girl ihastuttaa taas!” Päivän Biisit
