Who is Simon Juliff you ask? Simon’s thing, loosely, is pop-rock. Guitars and tunes. Slightly skewed. He tends to like classic and organic-sounding stuff. Big Star, The Beatles, T.Rex, The Who, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Teenage Fan Club, The Saints; and he’s got a singular sensibility in his writing that often evokes a hazy internal monologue, a mile-wide sardonic streak and perhaps, unexpectedly, an outdoorsy vibe that maybe suggests too many camping trips gone wrong.

'Stars' combines brightly dappled glimmers of classic pop-rock melodicism and echoes of Big Star, T. Rex, The Kinks and Neil Young with an occasionally darkened, frazzled vibe and guitars that crunch and spangle.
