Space rock. Psychedelic pop. Experimental prog. Although all of these sub-genres apply, labeling a band like Stardeath and White Dwarfs doesn’t exactly feel right. So to understand what the band is all about you have to know where they come from – the Coyne family. Stardeath and White Dwarfs frontman Dennis Coyne has the coolest uncle any young musician could ask for – The Flaming Lips’ frontman – Wayne Coyne.
After years of working as The Flaming Lips road crew, Dennis and the gang were inspired to be a part of the next generation of Oklahoma space-rock/psych-pop/experimental-prog bands that the elder Coyne and friends birthed over 25 years ago.
Since emerging as band that could hold their own, Stardeath and White Dwarfs have been touring with The Flaming Lips, Deerhoof, British Sea Power, Band of Horses and Explosions in the Sky – definitely not a bad start.
