Starkeeper, a Belgian downtempo pop band, evolves around songwriter duo Ivy Smits & Dieter Meeuwis assisted by Pieter Van Dessel and Kelvin Smits. Their new EP Find desire is nice mix of gentle vocals (Elle), mixed up front guitars (Best of Me). The kind of music that could have been included in movies like Juno, (500) Days of Summer or Little Miss Sunshine.
The title track Find Desire with its church like organ parts is slightly over the top, but doesn't cross to border to kitsch. Starkeeper is band that will find its way to fans of Lucky Soul or The Beautiful South. Exquisite pop melodies with a bunch of laptops riding shotgun.
