The band that killfully blends French lyrics and groovy sounds to create love-themed songs, describes ‘Starlite’, “Kind of 90’s house dance music with the rhythm section of a Sade’s song (we’re fans). That’s what we had in mind when this piano riff came out. A sexy, minimalist mood. Starlite is the name of the city where the story of the album is taking place.”.
