Vancouver's Shimmering Stars Sign to Hardly Art, Prep Debut LP
Following the release of their Exclaim!-approved "East Van" / "I'm Gonna Try" seven-inch last year, Vancouver garage pop rockers Shimmering Stars have signed with Seattle's Hardly Art, who will release the group's debut album this fall.


 The album is called Violent Hearts, and includes three of the four both songs from the band's seven-inch, along with 11 other previously unreleased tracks.


 For the uninitiated, a press release explains that Shimmering Stars "create reverb-soaked pop songs, full of arching harmonies, pulsing rhythms, and exquisite melodies, often with dark undertones, all while adhering to the timeless structural qualities of the seminal songs that inspired them."

Violent Hearts will be available on September 13 via Hardly Art and Almost Musique. A music video for "I'm Gonna Try" can be seen below.

Violent Hearts:

1. "Believe"
2. "I'm Gonna Try"
3. "No One"
4. "East Van Girls"
5. "Into The Sea"
