What we’ve heard from Starlight Girls up until now has been one thing. This is, no doubt about it, a different thing.

With production from Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart, “7×3” takes on a sinister tone that unfolds without the sweet, retro-styled pop approach of the Brooklyn band’s previous work. “Flutterby” was a gem, but Starlight Girls just might be onto something with this darker, more aggressive new direction.

“7×3″ drops as part of a 7” single coming this summer.
