The Stars hail from Toronto, Canada and are a defining band in the current sound of “indie” pop music. The group has released 6 studio albums and several EPs since their 2001 debut, showcasing a sound that is beautiful and lush, but maintains a youthful resistance to it. Their sound is polished, with parts owed to rock, electronic, and downtempo roots.
The prevailing themes of love, loss, and death can be found throughout their discography, but never pushing the envelope pass melancholy. The Stars always maintain a certain accessibility, even with the larger portion of the work being written on the most sobering of life’s topics. The voice of singer-guitarist Amy Milan
The groups’ most recent album “The North”, is being released on ATO records (part owned by Dave Matthews) and the band will be touring in support throughout 2012 and into 2013.
