Bright Stars

Dark nights are drawing in, which means the Stars will be shining brighter for longer…

no one is lost

The new record from Canadian indie-pop band Stars, ‘No One is Lost’, is set to drop in the UK this November. Two years on from their sixth record ‘The North’ – and a decade on from their seminal, swoonsome ‘Set Yourself on Fire’ – the band’s return is a welcome one for fans of their unabashedly romantic, emo-eloquent heartsongs.

Having caught them live in a quarter-full room in Wolverhampton, December 2012, I think it’s pretty safe to say that their star isn’t blazing bright in the UK unlike fellow Canadian art-rockers Arcade Fire, with only clued-in indie fans having sought out the band’s music. However, first single ‘From the Night’ is the band on fine form and will hopefully support my recommendation in encouraging music fans (think Metric covering The Smiths if that helps) in seeking out these bright bright Stars.
