Early goth overtones, proto-shoegaze allure and raw DIY production have informed this incredible collection of songs. With themes ranging from flora and fauna, love and loss to science fiction, Staring Problem gives us their strongest work to date in celebration of their and Modern Tapes' 10th year not only in collaboration but in existence.


released September 23, 2020

Alix Carl - drums
Milo Mendoza - bass
Lauren Owen - guitar, keys and vocals

Recorded by Matt Russell at Altered States

All songs by Staring Problem except M by the Cure*

We want to thank everyone who has supported us over this past decade. Since Staring Problem began ten years ago, we have been unbelievably lucky in the constellation of talented people who have shared space, equipment, knowledge, opportunities, inspiration, and kindness with us. We could never thank everyone, but imagine there is a long list here:

We have also lost a lot of the most important people to us on that list in the last few years. We hope this record stands not only as a record of loss but as a memorial, and are grateful to have the opportunity to try and honor them in this way. This is our interpretation of a very long, pretty bad, and fucking weird time. Now we can get started on the next one.

*we obviously love The Cure and we’ve been playing this song live for so long it would have felt wrong to leave it out.
