Bright Star Regulus

Long ago, right after one of those annoying heart-wrecks that usually arrive every three years or so, we received the following e-mail:

Hi, how are you? My name is Fan Zhang from Berkeley, California. I'm 19 years old and a first year at UC Berkeley. I've been a longtime fan, but first time submitter.

My music project that I wanted you to give a listen to is Bright Star Regulus. I made these music 2 years ago, when I was in high school. They are a bit experimental, a bit shoegazy. Give it a listen, let me know if you like.


Thank you.


Ever since then, we can’t help but to reach this EP and play it every single time that we come home and find ourselves feeling exactly the same way we did the first time we heard Bright Star Regulus’ music.

The most beautiful thing about bedroom folk music like this one, is its brutal inspiration and message of love. Good or bad, we can all easily feel (or get) the point, and well, during bad times, it just suits right.
