"Swedish synth-pop princess Sally Shapiro has shared another gorgeous track with us. The second single from her upcoming album Somewhere Else is called "Starman" which features Canadian pop duo Electric Youth. Together they’ve created a wonderful bubbling indie pop track featuring Sally Shapiro’s trademark disco likings and whimsical vocals."
"Mixing ultra-girly harmonies reminicent of a Molly Ringwald movie with a dose of trippy new-age synth, Shapiro’s music is our go-to when needing to blow off steam and dance around our bedroom. Download our premiere of the radio edit for her latest single “Starman” feat. Electric Youth above and just try to stay seated…"
"The song is an electronic triggered jaunt down the disco. Purposefully detached vocals somehow enforce an overwhelming warmth into the song, and you’re left with the comforting feeling that you’ll never dance alone again. How does she do it? How?!"
"Starman is a particularly deep and dreamy slick of these guys ScandiPop. Sally is at her hushed-Saint-Etienne best, and being backed by the vintage tones of Electric Youth’s Bronwyn, cast a beautiful vocal net. A totally compelling voice in electronic music, Sally has found the perfect music partner in Johan, who knows exactly how to deliver sweeping, passionate synth music, with a subtle 60s twist, that suits her just right. Cannot wait for the album."
"Evidently both duos’ styles were synth made for each other and this is quite the reason why the track can elevate itself to such a level of accomplished sophistication."

"Starman may or may not be a Swedish nod to John Carpenter's movie of the same name, but in any case, it's lovely, fun, and possibly the best song on the album."
