Gig 16th April 2017

Well we haven’t played for ages but we’re back!.. and we’re changing our name.

We’re playing with Dada Ono from Melbourne and others at The Valve Bar on Railway Square, 16th April 2017. Doors open at 3pm. We are scheduled to be on at 6:45pm.

This will be the last gig for Starling and the first gig for The Argon Room. We’ll change the name mid set!

Semaphore reviewed by Inpress

Semaphore has received another favourable review, this time by Street press Australia. It appeared in Melbourne’s Inpress magazine a couple of weeks ago. Read it here.

Semaphore is out now on itunes for mp3. If you are a bit old school (like me) and want the visually stunning physical copy in your hands, hit ‘Buy CD’ NOW! Also we are offering free postage for a limited time so don’t miss out on a great deal.

Semaphore CD available now at our store!

Great news at the Starling store!! We have finally resolved technical issues to offer you Semaphore on CD for the second time!

The album was produced by The Church’s Steve Kilbey and features the immense talents of TimEbandit Powles, Jason Walker, Jorden M Brebach, David Lane and Wes Gregorace to name a few!

Semaphore has been described in review as dreamily ethereal, a truly rewarding listening experience, and brilliant, honest and pure songwriting.

To celebrate, we will be offering free postage for the rest of September and the first 30 orders will also include the 2006 ‘Same Old Trap EP’ from Simon’s previous band Etherland for free! Bargain!

Get down to the Starling store now and form an orderly queue.. we can’t afford crowd control!

Problems in our store..

Unfortunately we have a problem with Paypal and are unable to accept orders for the Semaphore CD at the moment. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible and apologise for any inconvenience.

If you are in Sydney you will find the CD for sale at Egg Records in Newtown.

Semaphore is also available as Mp3 download at several stores including iTunes, Amazon and for streaming at Spotify, simfy, Deezer and Rdio.





More good reviews for Semaphore

Another great review for Semaphore. This one from Spire Focus.

Simon Starling is one lucky guy. It’s not everyday that you write an album and precede to have Australian rock royalty produce and play on it. But give Simon’s new album ‘Semaphore’ one listen, and concentrate on the core of the songs,  and you’ll realise that luck had nothing to do with it. What drew Steve Kilbey (The Church) in to want to produce it is the brilliant, honest and pure songwriting, and this is what makes Starling’s ‘Semaphore’ a must have release of 2012. read more..
