Lost my way
Nothing left
I'm sorry
When all was lost
New heights
Never see another day
Stars collide
It's not heaven


"A mixture of shoegaze, noise, indie-rock... a noisy and chaotic world, but melodic flashes of light that appear."- Riccardo Cavrioli (indie for bunnies)

"Quick rhythmic tom-tom fueled drumming sets the pace as deep resonant guitar chords chime down in bold strokes. “Waiting on something, other than the dark days of life” is the opening lyrical refrain. Guitar and bass kick in at a more frantic pace, with quick strum buzzing guitars in constant motion. In under a minute the tracks essential hook is reached with the lines “Oh, I will never tell you lies. Oh, I will never let you down.” Those vocals are stylized and delivered with a diction and processing effects that bring to mind Peter Murphy's classic output. The instrumental delivery is far more forceful however, driving forward to its hyper-charged conclusion." Dave Cromwell

" Stellarscope stir in a shoe gaze psyche rock aesthetic and a bit of grunge too. Tom Lugo's kind of barbiturate droning vox has a broken dream sound and there a kind of 80's romance wave quality " -Robb Donker Curtius (American Pancake)

"My word, the surging intense ricocheting from this ‘un is quite something else, lifted from a January scheduled full length titled “A glimpse of light in the darkness” via patetico recordings, this is Stellarscope with the immense solar soul burn that is ‘shining light’. Admittedly lyrical wise, a little close to the bone, this one really does touch nerves, but that said, a euphoric forlorn it be hazed in sheens of dream drifted shimmering that rage and rise with bitter sweet jubilance all the time shifting headlong into a celestial rapture."- Mark Barton (the sunday experience)
