MUMBAI: Oklahoma City psych/prog/experimental pop quartet Stardeath & White Dwarfs Stardeath & White Dwarfs have signed to Warner Bros. Records.
After spending the last few years traversing the galaxy as the road crew for fellow Oklahomans The Flaming Lips, these four men have gained a collective lifetime’s worth of knowledge and experience while inadvertently inhaling enough helium and confetti to power a free-floating circus of their own.
As a result of this kind of incubated gestation, a strange yet melodically intoxicating band has emerged.
They’ve independently released a six-song EP, "That’s Cool," in 2005, followed by a 7" single in the UK, "Toast & Marmalade For Tea" / "Chemical," on Half Machine Records in 2008. Both feature cover art by Wayne Coyne. SDWD are now sprinkling the final magic dust on their first full-length album, THE BIRTH, recorded with local Oklahoma studio whiz Trent Bell. It’s scheduled to collide with earth in 12" vinyl form, with download card for redemption of the full album, on May 19th. The glistening satellite CD and all digital retail forms impact the Solar System on 2 June.
