Montreal synth-pop outfit Stars dropped their latest record The North last year, but this September, the band will release two non-album cuts online from those sessions as a limited-edition 7″. The first of these is called “Wishful,” and is a breathy bit of new-wave revival. Singer Amy Millan’s voice bubbles over driving drums and cloudy synth lines, giving the song a genuine and endearing air. Check it out below.
Wishful/The Light is due out 9/10 on ATO.
