A full press release can be read below:

"Stars and Sons
Debut single In the Ocean out on 17th November through Alcopop!

"Big brash intelligent indie pop" - Huw Stephens
"Nice sound! Well done you in Brighton." - Jonathon Ross
"[In the ocean is] an uplifting indie pop anthem if there ever was one" - Jim Gellatly

Stars and Sons is the dazed but loveable brainchild of Mike Lord. After a long summer spent serving melting ice-cream to satanic children at Colchester zoo, Lord realized he would have to do everything within his grasp to avoid employment. Employers nationwide seemed to agree with this as he was first rejected from Sainsburys then B&Q the following month. He retreated back to his bedroom, tail between legs and started writing and recording.

Debut single In the Ocean is like an Elliot Smith meets Dennis Wilson mini-opus - all layered hand claps and minor chords around Lord's beguiling falsetto. Accompanying the single is a phantasmagoric DIY video that takes in an underwater dance scene with Scarlett Johanson and climaxes with Lord being tossed from a wardrobe into the sea. With plaudits ranging from Jonathan Ross through Zane Lowe to Huw Stephens, and fresh from a support tour with Okkervil River, the single is making a massive impact.
