Album Review - By Starlight - Antics

By Starlight Antics Album Review

The amazing band By Starlight has just released the debut album under 604 Records, the same label as popular bands such as Marianas Trench, Carly Rae Jepsen, Faber Drive and Fighting For Ithaca. The Trio has knocked their album Antics out of the park. Antics released on June 4th, 2013 and I have not stopped playing it since.

Antics starts out with their debut single Here’s To The Times, a catchy up beat tune that reminisces about the good times in a relationship gone bad. They have also released a fun video for this song where label mate Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench plays the douche bag that steals the girl. In the video with the help of his friends/band mates Nigel gets revenge on his high school sweetheart that left him for the over the top Ramsay. The best line in the song is “C U Next Tuesday”, I giggle every time I hear it.

The other songs on the album are just as catchy and you can’t help but dance to the amazing melodies, synths and fist pumping beats. Nigel John Crowe and Rachel Ashmore have amazing vocals that are simple perfection alongside Jeff Zipp’s guitar talents. Each song matches the previous one with great lyrics and instrumentals. I think this band is on to something and is going to shoot to the top of the charts in no time.

Antics closes the album with two of my favorite songs from all the tracks 11:11 and Monster. I’ve got everyone I know dancing to these songs and that is probably the only apology By Starlight needs to make…getting people like me out on the dance floor that have no right being there. Antics is one of the best debuts I have heard from a newly signed artist in a long time. Well done By Starlight and well done 604 for inking this deal.

Antics is now available for download on iTunes and you can follow By Starlight on or on Twitter @ByStarlightBand Check them out and get ready for a workout because you can’t help but rock out to each and every track.

  1. Album where all musical or lyrical ideas contribute to a single overall theme or unified story. Absolutely amazing, we can not be more thankful for all the albums we have played for and all the people we have met throughout our whole journey of playing.
