Dismal Stars explores the lush, melodic sounds of the ‘90s, invigorated by heavy rock instrumentals.
The three piece band is formed by singer/guitarist Nathan Aguilar, bassist Ryan Hill, and drummer Jake Beal. The trio began playing together in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2018 and quickly recorded their debut album ‘Genie’ which will be released in October 2019. The band’s live performances weave seamlessly between the melodic tracks on their record -- with some added heaviness -- and psychedelic, experimental soundscapes, accompanied by Aguilar’s almost stream of consciousness lyrics. Before forming Dismal Stars, Aguilar was a touring member of Cults. Aguilar is also a current member of the psych-rock band Dead Heavens.
