STAR VISION is a new rock act from Stockholm, Sweden, born out of nostalgia for the 80s – a time when blockbuster ﬁlms ﬁlled the big screen, guitar solos ruled the radio, and epic summers created memories that would last forever. Taking inﬂuence from artists including, Foreigner, Don Henley, Genesis, Journey, Whitesnake, Richard Marx, Lou Gramm and John Parr, Star Vision’s debut EP ‘Another Time, Another Place’ captures the spirit of yesteryear without kitsch or cliché.
‘Another Time, Another Place’ was self-produced and recorded by Star Vision in Stockholm, Sweden and mixed by London-based, award-winning composer, producer, and mixing/mastering engineer, Seﬁ Carmel. Carmel has mixed, remixed, and mastered tracks for the likes of David Bowie, Phil Collins, Bruno Mars, Michael Bublé, Massive Attack, BB King and others.
The four-song EP opens with the hard rocking, keyboard-driven “Searching High and Low (Remedy)“, and is followed by the EP’s nostalgic pop/rock anthem, “Destiny“, the heartfelt “Last Day of September“, and closes with the arena-ready “Remember Those Nights”.
Scott van Dort
STAR VISION is fronted by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Scott van Dort, formerly of Los Angeles act, The Black String Theory. The band released a self-titled EP in 2010 and a full-length album in 2012 to positive reviews, often drawing comparisons to Muse, Radiohead, and Coldplay.
During 2014 and 2015, van Dort worked on the Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival Sci-Fest, collaborating with directors such as Dan Castellaneta (“The Simpsons”), Philippe Mora (“The Howling”), and Jack Kenny (“Warehouse 13” and “Falling Skies”). He also continued to produce music in multiple genres for various anonymous projects.
STAR VISION represents a full circle for Van Dort. “I grew up listening to hard rock and metal. But I’ve always felt a strong connection to the sounds I heard on the radio and the music that my Dad played when I was a kid after he unexpectedly passed away in 2021, I felt a strong urge to revisit the music of my youth. With STAR VISION, I feel able to combine all the elements I love about music – keyboards, guitars, drums and strong vocal hooks.”
