Michael Molinaro’s (The SandPaper) STELLAR Review of Stelladeora’s High Energy Performance at Jersey Shorefest in LBI!
First and Foremost, THANK YOU EVERYONE for coming to support Stelladeora in LBI for the Hurricane Sandy First Responders Cause! It was great fun, great drinks, food, good times with friends, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! It was a BEAUTIFUL day, thank you all times a million! Thank you Jonathan Carr for having us be a part of your day!
Also, HUGE Thank You Michael Molinaro at The SandPaper for the amazing and generously flattering review of our performance at Jersey Shorefest two weekends ago. We feel incredibly lucky to have been a part of such an amazing event for such a great cause. Here is his review of us, from the article:
“Finally as the sun began its descent, Stelladeora took the stage. They gave off a heavier sound but found ways to make the dark noise beautiful. It was also catchy, with each original song seeming to have at least one memorable line or hook. At times the band sounded similar to Paramore or Evanescence, which frontwoman Justina Carubia later cited as influences.
They got there the traditional way: sending their stuff in. And Jersey Shorefest organizers liked what they heard. Though a cover of Bruno Mars “Locked Out of Heaven” went over well, the real energy came during the band’s originals, their bodies getting lost in the light of the sunset like shadow puppets.
“When we got called back about this, we were so excited,” Carubia said. “We were kind of skeptical at first because we heard a lot of covers. We didn’t know if people would dig our original stuff, first of all, and second of all, it’s a lot heavier than what we’ve been hearing all day."
The band dedicated its song “Goodbye August” to those still “getting back on their feet” after Superstorm Sandy. “It really relates a lot to it. Playing this benefit, it couldn’t be more perfect to just dedicate it to that. It talks about summertime and the different phases of life, coming and going, one year passing. When one door closes, another door opens. So Sandy came and went. It sucks, but it’s not going to stop us from moving on to the next phase and rebuilding.” Check out their free digital download at stelladeora.bandcamp.com.”
