Stars - The North

It’s been more than two years since we last heard new music from Montreal’s Stars, but just last week we got Ben Gibbard covering their classic “Set Yourself On Fire,” and today, the first single from their forthcoming LP, The North. It couldn’t come at a more perfect moment: “The Theory Of Relativity” showcases the band at their summer-poppiest, all bubbling synths, click-clap drums and infectious melody; the verses are delivered by Torquil Campbell with Amy Millan chiming in on the chorus. It’s 99 degrees in NYC today but this thing is like a sweet breeze. Hear below:

  1. I like how they’re incorporating more electronic sounds back to their music, and how they don’t make slavery metaphors while doing it.
