Stellarscope is a 3 piece alternative band hailing from the southern suburbs of Philadelphia, PA USA.

Over the course of a decade and several releases, Stellarscope has developed a sound architecture that is constantly evolving.

Stellarscope has the rare ability to combine quality space-pop and sonically charged experimentation. They create textured soundscapes that border on the psychedelic with emphasis in songwriting and expansion.

Stellarscope has consistently played the East Coast of the USA & Canada for many years and have released several full-lengths, EPs, and they have also participated in various world wide compilations and tribute albums. Their music has also been featured on Discovery Channel, A&E, MTV, and more.
