Starlight Girls - "Fancy" (video) (premiere)

Pop, disco, and synthpop converge on the vibrant new track by the Brooklyn band.

The vibrant debut album by Brooklyn quintet Starlight Girls will be released on 15 January, 2016, and its blend of classic pop, disco, and modern synthpop is so ebullient it'll be hard to ignore. This band is a delight, and if you're new to their music then the new video for the track "Fancy" will be a perfect introduction.

We asked singer/songwriter/keyboardist Christina B about the idea behind the video, to which she said succinctly and hilariously, "We set out to make a video similar to the one for 'We Built This City' by Jefferson Starship, but less shitty."

Mission accomplished, I'd say.

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
