Scottish rock band Estrella are about to release their latest single ‘Here I Am’ on 24th November from their highly anticipated second album which is due for release in May 2015. With the single being recently featured in Classic Rock Magazine’s Top Ten Tracks of the week last month, Estrella are definitely the band to watch.
Brothers Paul Gunn (Vocals), Luke Gunn (Lead Guitarist), Nathan Gunn (Bass), along with Leo McPherson (Drums) who are now based in Aberdeen, have certainly been making a name for themselves since releasing their debut album ‘Come Out To Play’ in 2012.
Successful chart positions on both Amazon and iTunes, this 14 track album is classic rock but with a modern sound. Huge riffs, melodic vocals and harmonies, with a kicking rhythm all combining to produce epic sounding anthems. There are monster sounding tracks such as ‘Come Out To Play’, ‘Shout – I Wanna Hear You’, ‘She’s Got It’ and ‘I’d Give It All’ full of classic rock riffs, to the older sounding rock vibe of ‘Chance Of A Lifetime’ and ‘Party’ which makes Estrella sound timeless. ‘Mona Lisa Smile’ and the ballad ‘Don’t Forget Me’ show that this band can produce a brilliant debut album with many influential styles. ‘Rocker Lily’ with its gritty guitar riffs is a standout song on the album as the vocals soar over an addictive rock sound along with another epic rock track ‘Whatever It Is’.
Having produced a great sounding debut album, their latest single ‘Here I Am’ has taken all the classic elements they do so well to combine their trademark sound into an anthem of a song. Powerful melodies from the outset and with a catchy chorus, this is instantly an attention grabbing tune. Add in a killer guitar solo and it is infectious enough to get some serious plays. With a song of this quality you know that the second album is going to be every bit as good as their first one.
With a string of live dates behind them playing at Hard Rock Hell, and support slots with The Answer, H.E.A.T, House Of Lords and Beck to name a few, Estrella have also been making a name for themselves on the live scene with memorable performances and have gained a lot of interest from their live shows alone.
When rock sounds this good, a band like Estrella are definitely a band to have in any rock collection and their next album is certainly one to get excited about. In the meantime make sure you listen to their latest single to see why this is a band you need to take notice of.
