Starlings – Safe in Heaven Dead (Vinyl E.P.)


More indie guitar stuff with this 1991 release on Dave Stewart’s Anxious label. New Zealand musician Chris Sheehan , along with drummer Barry Blacker and bass player Matt Parkin produced these love songs ,ever so slightly tinged feedback  that feel like a midway between Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream. A four tracker with the baggy dance of “Please Stay” the stand out track for me all live precussion. More snarling vocals abound with the lead track “The Angels Share” reminding me of the Pixies. “Thames Eternal” sounds New Orderish with the fuzzy feedback giving a unique , grungy sound! The title track whispers semi acoustically but is over far too quickly, so loads of Pigeon Holing going on!!
