Star Crystal – Follow Me
(S/R – 2015)
Totally reminds of music you hear on those 80’s B-Movies – elegant melodic rock with female fronted vocals a la Pat Benetar meets Heart & Berlin who are from the Ukraine.
Some fantastic numbers on here from this quintet like the cracking opener ‘Follow Me’; the epic ballad ‘Miracle’ that has a gospel like feel to it too with those backing vocals; the gorgeous ‘Don’t Give Up’ or the definitely anthemic poppy sounding closer ‘I Go Home’.
Sounds like the last 30 or so years never existed and I have no issue with that at all whatsoever.
