After two years Steering by Stars return to release their sophomore album, The Cold Embrace.

The follow up to their debut album Cables, the album was produced by the group and mixed alongside experienced sound engineer Duncan Campbell at Mixmasters Studios in Adelaide. The album was mastered by Matthew Grey (Powderfinger, The Middle East).

The Cold Embrace is the intense exploration of the fragility and dissolution of interpersonal relationships, with a clear emphasis on capturing the elegance of the band’s compelling live performance.

Now Playing6 On The Street

6 on the St is a film project that takes an intimate look at 12 Adelaide artists in a series of six minute documentaries.

Steering By Stars came together over a shared love of early post punk in Adelaide, South Australia.

The band’s unique post rock take on music embraces the dark romanticism of Bauhaus paired with the geographical isolation of Snowman.

“There's a darkness about them that draws you in and captures you completely.” fasterlouder.com.au
“The raw, tangible effect is immediate. At times atmospheric, emotional and cinematic, the album is exceptionally engaging sonic journey.” The AU Review
“After a frantic opening, 'Closer' morphs into a contemplative, piano-led number that doesn't just hinge its success as a post-rock composition on a predictable, impending crescendo, but actually turns the 'calm before the storm' into something of a storm itself.” whothehell.net
