Prior to this album they self released an EP titled ‘Happiness,’ which was well received. All four songs from that EP continue to be played on various college, independent, online and major radios across the US, Mexico and Latin America. Their sound was described as “ Happiness in musical code” by People en Espanol and as “a kind of retro alternative pop that refuses to be blue” by iTunes. They love the stage and regularly appear around the LA area at Los Globos, The OC Steel House and Mal’s Bar among others. They also made their MEXICO and CMJ debuts in 2015. Their music and videos have been featured on popular TV programs like Lanzate on Univision in the US and on El Shuffle in Mexico plus others.
Love Star loves to push the envelope. They decided to release their album not only as a full length album, but also in three chapters, thereby turning it into a “musical book.” Espectro is often referred to as a Music Soap Opera and in their own words, Love Star describes their music as “dismantled electro pop.” To showcase their new album, they have a tour planned this summer in Mexico and will perform extensively throughout the U.S. Their tour is titled “Turn your SCARS into STARS” as it echoes the message from their new album.
