It’s a lucky day for us here at Audiofemme, as we’ve stumbled upon THE feel-good jam of the summer from a little-known Brooklyn-based pop artist nRCS, aka Fionn Knyper. “Shoot Stars”, Knyper’s second single ahead of his forthcoming EP, is out today and available for a first listen here. Produced by electropop powerhouses Memoryy and Brothertiger, the track is nothing short of anthemic high-gloss perfection. The intro trickles in organ synth and twinkling harp arpeggios before propulsive electronic drums make it clear it’s a dance song, full of potential and energy fulfilled only upon the moment when Knyper’s gorgeous falsetto vocals come in (we’ve be listening to those hooks on repeat today). The bridge nods strongly towards 80s synth pop goodness, and carries the track to a strong finish. Of the its inspiration, Knyper credits mother nature. “I wrote Shoot Stars shortly after a trip to Joshua Tree to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower. I spent the night with two close friends atop huge boulders, watching the sky light up with meteors for hours.”  You’ll want to repeat it as soon as the last note plays! Take a listen here and look out for his EP (hopefully) coming out soon.
