Listen! Stars – From The Night
Good news for lovers of Canadian indie pop band Stars. The Montreal/Toronto band return with their 7th album, No One is Lost, which clearly doesn’t describe my family’s road trips.
The band’s first single is a somewhat surprising six and a half minute, dancey synth pop tune, From the Night. The track does what so many Stars songs do so well – that powerful, joint chorus between singers Amy Millan and (previous PHM interviewee) Torq Campbell. The album was recorded above a discotheque, which definitely comes through on this song. Good thing they didn’t record above a slaughterhouse, or we might have gotten the Downward Spiral. No One is Lost is out October 14, and the band play Riot Fest in Toronto on September 7.
