Seven White Horses checks all the appropriate Starbenders boxes, with vocalist Kimi Shelter pulling her goth Stevie Nicks act off with consummate aplomb, somehow bringing both darkness and light – and a light dusting of glitter – to a chorus that soars in a way most choruses simply don't.
And the lyrics? The opening lines of the first verse paint a vivid picture: "Love like heroin burns like hell." sings Kimi. "I've got a thing for angels who fell / Suck me, fuck me, make it last / Seven white horses ride for black mass." Meanwhile, the chorus lifts into the glamosphere accompanied by the lines, "Velvet leaves are falling / I die / California's calling but you'd never go."
What's it about? Perhaps we'll never know. But we like it, severely.
