Starlight Mints

About Starlight Mints

Candy-coated mod quintet the Starlight Mints sprouted through the ground in Norman, OK — the same home state as the equally oddball dream pop band Flaming Lips. Starlight Mints — vocalist/guitarist Allan Vest, keyboardist Marian Love Nunez, bassist Javier Gonzales, drummer Andy Nunez, and guitarist Matt Goad — began jamming together in the '90s as a seven-person band complete with orchestra, giving birth to their own funky brand of heavily instrumental — think cello, violin, triangle, and sound effects — surrealistically worded pop sound. A perfect fit for the Barsuk label, the Starlight Mints continued to delve further into the indie pop frontiers throughout the '00s.
