Star 99 - "Girl"

San Jose, CA's Star 99 are influenced by 90's jangly power pop, and you can hear that on "Girl." The song sounds like track fourteen on your favorite 90's soundtrack. It's the song by that band you've never heard of before, and you can't find anything else by in the pre-internet world. It's impossibly upbeat, but has a surprisingly dark guitar keeping it from getting too cheery... and also making the entire thing just a little menacing. This is a ridiculously fun song in the vein of artists like Fuzzy and Velocity Girl. If that sounds like your kind of thing, you'll end up loving Star 99.

You can listen to "Girl" below. Bitch Unlimited is due out August 4 on Lauren Records, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Star 99, check out the band on Instagram.
