Sudden Death of Stars are a shoegaze/psych band from Rennes, France. Formed in 2010, they were complete as a band when they found the only sitarist west of Paris. They released a first EP on Parisian label Close Up followed by their debut album 'Getting Up, Going Down' in late 2011.
Their sitar-heavy sound, influenced by great psych bands from Fairport Convention to the Rain Parade, caught the ear of the Cornershop-run label Ample Play Records, who reissued the album in the summer of 2013 in the UK and the US, with the addition of a bonus track and a Burger Records cassette. After a Christmas split 7" with Ample Play label mate Beat Mark, they release their 2nd album ‘All Unrevealed Parts of the Unknown’ in Spring 2014 to critical acclaim on both sides of the Channel.

Everytime something goes wrong in Neles life, she writes a song about it. This results in songs like "Loser's Twist", "I Really Wish I Was A Bitch" and "I Love You But I Google Other People". Her band delivers delightful backing vocals, a whole lot of "shalala" and an instant holiday feeling. The music could be described as mean folk, acoustic punk or new objectivity. Nele is inspired by anti-folk heroes like Jeffrey Lewis, Daniel Johnston and The Moldy Peaches, but also by sixties girlbands like The Ronettes, The Chrystals and The Shangri-Las.
