Out on Prototyp Recording & Bang ehf via Sena ehf, Starwalker’s debut album proves this venture is by no means just a side project – it is the coming-together of two musical innovators, creating the music they were destined to make. The album intermingles cinematic expanse, intergalactic instrumentation, entrancing electronics, and sticky hooks, yielding a poetic pop pastiche of the highest order. The result is an accomplished debut, 10 tracks reflecting a singular vision from two musical icons.
