Alt-country act Starpainter has released a nostalgia-filled new track, “Wild Azaleas.”
The song exhibits old-style harmonicas and bittersweet guitar strumming that somehow makes you dwell on both your happiest and saddest memories.
“Starpainter exists in the neatly carved out spaces between rock and country and pop. They are distantly familiar, like a newly met cousin, but distinctly shiny and new. They wear their influences on their sleeves, with pride, showcasing strong songwriting and an affinity for classic folk and rock,” Auteur Research says of the band.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
