UK Artist of the Week: Moviestar

This week might be a first for us as our latest Artist Of The Week comes from a trio of intergalactic archeologists who call themselves Moviestar. This band is like no other we’ve come across. Sent to earth to save us all from “Stupid People,” Moviestar combine punk, pop, and sci-fi to create something truly unique.

The first single to be taken from their debut album is the infectiously catchy “Stupid People.” As the title may imply, the single is about people on Earth and the terrible ways we can treat each other and ourselves. Although this band’s narrative is pretty out there, you have to give them kudos for calling out what’s become of the world in its current climate. “Stupid People” is a reverb heavy piece of punk-rock goodness, full of attitude but also a lot of fun.

Their press release tells us they were formed in the future on planet Fenris, but they now reside in Norway as of 2016. Infinity Vik, The Octopus Goddess, and The Anaconda (yes, really) play a variety of obscure instruments including a disfigured guitar with only 4 strings, a 32 stringed instrument, a synth bass, and a child’s drums kit amongst various others we’re sure.

They are also said to put on one hell of a live show with Infinity Vik being compared to David Bowie or Freddie Mercury when it comes to stage presence. If that doesn’t intrigue you, we don’t know what will. We hope we can catch a glimpse of this mystery band in the flesh in the very near future—or maybe the past for them.

Moviestar’s debut album Stupid People / Happy Days arrives in stores on 9th February 2018 via Oh Yeah!
