Austin-based band Star Parks has announced the release of their sophomore record The New Sounds of Late Capitalism out February 14 via Modern Outsider (pre-order). Today the band shared 'Something More' the latest single to be lifted from the release with PopMatters and the song will be on all streaming services on Wednesday. About the song PopMatters says, 'Having grown from a solo act to an expansive, multi-piece orchestra, Star Parks offer listeners a sophisticated, soulful pop sound that lands somewhere between Roxy Music and Saturday Looks Good yet carries a particular combination of starkness and buoyancy. If these are the sounds of late capitalism, at least we can shake our groove thing as the chairs shift on the deck, and the water rises. If we've seen this movie before, we at least know that the band plays on.'

To help us better understand these elusive beings, 'CATS' has returned to the Sands Theater, Marina Bay Sands!
