From spaced-out ’70s funk to acidic rave flavours.

Stars Are the Light will be Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson’s seventh album, following their 2017 two-part cosmic kraut opus Occult Architecture.

The album’s second single ‘Lost Heads’ hints at the ’70s funk and ’90s rave themes present on the rest of the LP, which is the pair’s most explicitly dance-orientated effort to date, drawing on disco to bring Johnson’s guitar and Yamada’s synths and vocals to the fore.

“We were very inspired by the space and community of a disco,” Yamada says, “a space of free self-expression through dance, fashion, and mode of being; where everyone was welcome, diversity was celebrated, and identity could be fluid; where the life force that animates each of us differently could flower.”
