song: "Star-Shaped Eyes" - Temple of Angels
Everything about "Star-Shaped Eyes" is absolutely tremendous. The single, which comes from Temple of Angels's upcoming EP Foiled, is coated in layers of heavy noise and sheen. One can drown themselves in the torrent of guitar, keys, and drums, letting the waves of metallic noise continue to wash over them. Throughout it all, the vocals of Bre Morell remain a constant contrasting presence; the dynamic soprano crying out with an urgency that matches the instrumental weight of bandmates Rob Glynn, Patrick Todd, Cole Tucker, and Avery Burton. It might be a bit cliché to point to the song's title as an indication of what to expect, but one can't help but notice how truly starry-eyed the entire affair makes you feel.
