Sorry – “Starstruck”

Sorry – “Starstruck”

London’s Sorry would probably bristle at being simply described as “post-punk” – their glitchy, groovy, art-rock has so much more going on than that – but there’s no denying there’s a strong through-line from their sound and the experimental aesthetic of that original ’80s scene. Plus it justifies me posting about it, so I’ll go with it.

Originally released in November 2018, “Starstruck” was the first single from their 2020 debut 925 and accomplishes the rare feat of making the sound of retching a pop hook. I freely admit they were not an act I’d paid attention to until very recently, but announcing their first North American tour behind their forthcoming sophomore record Anywhere But Here – out October 7 – prompted me to have a listen and I’ve quickly become addicted.
