Label: Polyvinyl Records
Listen to: Beach Monster, While I’m Alive, Florida
It was through the grapevine – a grapevine in the shape of Youtube daily vlogger, Charles Trippy (Internet Killed Television / CTFxC) – that I discovered this band in 2010. Starfucker, stylised as STRFKR, are an electronic infused four piece hailing from Portland, Oregon and are what you would get if you threw the likes of Miniature Tigers and The XX into a mixer and pressed ‘go’. You may be wondering what the outcome of that would be, and the answer is simple: endless minutes of unadulterated awesome.

After signing to Illinois’ Polyvinyl Records, STRFKR have released two full length albums with their most recent, Miracle Mile, being released in February of this year. With songs that fit any kind of mood, the band can accompany you while you do anything from studying or driving to dancing as though you’re having the time of your life. It’s with Miracle Mile that the band are hopping across the big pond for a slew of UK tour dates this autumn, hitting Edinburgh’s Electric Circus on November 16th with Miracle Strip. They’ll be bringing their catchy, “foot tap worthy” songs along with them and their passion fueled live shows are sure to leave any fortunate passer-by a new but thoroughly satisfied fan.

Tickets for the band’s show can be bought at Ripping Records (Edinburgh), Tickets Scotland (Edinburgh & Glasgow) or through the venue itself.
