Starbenders have announced their new album Take Back the Night, due for release on 22nd September 2023 via Sumerian Records.
The band have also shared a video for their new single We’re Not OK.
“When I initially wrote We’re Not OK, I was thinking about the struggle I’ve had with spirituality,” explains vocalist Kimi Shelter. “Sometimes I feel like a poser when I try to tap into faith. That small voice going, “you really don’t believe”, “you know it’s not going to be any different”… and on and on. I brought my mentor and dear friend, James Hall, in to co-write. He was able to bring more light to that feeling of hopelessness that we all feel. What’s important is coming together to be “less not okay” and riding out the storm. The answering of prayers can be very subtle, we just have to keep our minds open to the possibility of things changing and working themselves out. We tapped into this further with the music video. We also had the honour of working with Gilbert Trejo. He immediately picked up on the sentiment of the song and wanted to show us floating through Hollywood, going through it. The band is depicted as eventually finding one another and carrying on along the walk of fame. Definitely deep rock n’ roll poetry.”
