Band of the Week: Estrella

Band of the Week Show hosts classic rockers Estrella

Local rockers Estrella are featured this week on shmuFM as our Band of the Week - you can hear them live on the Band Of The Week Show on Monday the 13th of October from 8-10pm, where you'll hear some of their studio tracks, and an exclusive acoustic track, as well as getting to know the band and what they're up to.

Since kicking off their first UK Tour and the release of their debut album - “Come Out to Play” - in May 2012, Scottish rockers Estrella have been earning themselves a reputation as one of the best live up-and-coming British rock bands around today!

Now selling out headline gigs, they have created a real underground buzz within the UK’s rock community for not only delivering irrepressible live performances - where stunning lead guitar solos meet a captivating frontman and undoubtedly more than a hint of sibling showmanship rivalry – but by accumulating an ever increasing fan base of loyal #EstrellaWarriors!

Their sound is pure 70/80s-infused rock - mixed with melody and riffs, thunderous beats and anthemic choruses - delivered with a fresh modern twist that places rock back in today’s mainstream music! In June 2014, Estrella headed to the infamous Rockfeld Studios in Wales to record their sophomore album. Steeped in musical history since 1965, Rockfeld has played host to Black Sabbath, Motorhead, The Darkness and it is where Queen recorded ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. This is an extremely exciting time for these full-time musicians who certainly know how to rock!
