The track is written from the perspective of someone who falls in love with an extraordinary girl, who they see as a goddess. The light hearted, feel good tune encapsulates that first feeling of love, desire and fascination with a person.
Talking about STAR SIGN’s storyline, frontman Alex, says “I wanted to try and emulate that feeling of the honeymoon phase and being completely infatuated with someone and their mystery.”
‘STAR SIGN’ is the quartet’s latest single since their four-track, pop-rock EP ‘OVERTHOUGHT’ released in February 2022. The EP showcased Tragic Me’s diverse range of pop and alternative rock influences, while staying true to their energetic pop-punk roots.
'OVERTHOUGHT' had a successful launch, experiencing airplay on Triple J's ShortFastLoud program and The Faction Radio, alongside media coverage from Wall of Sound, The Point Music News, the Bloody Brilliant Beers podcast and more. The band’s gigging schedule through 2022 cemented Tragic Me as a quality act in the Brisbane scene. Highlight performances have been opening for Between You and Me (VIC) at the Brisbane date of their ARMAGEDDON World Tour, as well as sharing thestage with Australian Alt-Rock heroes British India (VIC).
Formed in 2018 by members Alex (vocals) and Ben (guitar), Tragic Me began making waves in the pop-punk scene releasing their debut EP ‘Young Hearts’ in November 2018, before hitting the stage in support of international alt-rock heavyweights Deaf Havana (UK) at the Brisbane show of their 2019 Australian Tour. 2020 saw the band transform their style with a new-found passion for the shimmer and perfection of pop music.
