Palace of Rock presents Stargroves
The road to success is especially tough for indie bands. Stargroves, a New York City-based indie-pop band has defied those odds. The group originated with lifelong musician and New York University Computer Science student Teddy Watson. As founder and lead singer, Teddy recruited the current band members, bringing their eclectic mix of talents together to create the band's unique sound. Teddy writes the band's songs, drawing inspiration from musicians like Sigur Rós and Stars.
In 2012 Teddy took a three-month hiatus to Iceland. In Reykjavík, he focused on writing songs for the upcoming album. Upon returning to New York, Teddy teamed up with Freelance Whales’ producer Jeremy Sklarsky to record the music.
The band recorded all songs in New York City at Threshold Studios. Teddy Watson produced, Jeremy Sklarsky was the recording engineer, and Enrico de Trizio assisted with the production. The album is scheduled for release on July 22, 2014.
