Norway - Full Moon 138 - 12/24/07
"White Shade" is the first single from Lukestar's second album. Lukestar is (now) a quintet based in Oslo, and play falsetto-emo-pop with a big heart and a soft soul. And they're getting away with it.
Their 2003/2004 debut album, Alpine Unit, did quite well (distributed around Europe), even though they didn't become BIGtime superstars. Luckily enough. Their sophomore album Lake Toba is ready for a mid-January release, and after hearing this single I must say I'm expecting quite some record. Because "White Shade" simply is an extremely catchy, to-the-point tune. A brilliant and efficient pop song. Elf pop.
