“You really ought to make your own decision.”

“Stars” by Wons Phreely + the Horses | More from the inbox – this time, another comfortably retro song; this time, it isn’t K-pop, you snobs. Wons Phreely is Justin Wonsly, originally from Australia but now based in Los Angeles. For some reason I feel I have come across him before, but I digress. The story here is how he was rejuvenated by a move to the States, how he went from troubadour to glittery indie rocker (with a new band) with the change in setting; although “Stars” was written in Sydney, the resulting sound is something arguably rowdy, with a vintage sheen that feels very much off a John Hughes film, or something similar. It bounces along nicely, and serves as a strong introduction… or reintroduction, as the case may be. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
