Stars is one of the most popular and admired Indie rock band with a huge fan following across the world. This group which has been nominated for the Juno award began its journey in Canada and later on shifted base to New York City and finally Montreal. This musical legacy was the brainchild of vocalist Torquil Campbell and keyboard player Chris Seligman and was founded as early as 2000.
In addition to Torquil and Chris, the other members of Stars include Amy Milan, Evan Cranley and Pat McGee. The most remember single of this troupe is Ageless Beauty which was a part of the album Set Yourself on Fire released in 2004. A very interesting fact is that all members of this group also belong to the indie band Broken Social Scene and both have a common record label known as Arts and Crafts. In addition to their musical abilities as a group, Campbell is also an actor who has appeared in television shows like Sex and the City and Law and Order. Milan has bought out two solo albums which were hugely successful on the charts.
Stars is an interesting and different name that was chosen for the band in memory of a similar venture thought short-lived one by Syd Barrett. Members of this troupe state that their biggest influences have been Berlioz, Outkast, New Order, The Smiths and Broken Social Scene. Some of the famous albums by this group includes In Our Bedroom After the War, Sad Robots which is available as an online download and the single Celebration Guns which was the title song for the popular television series Zone of Separation.
The Stars band is currently focused on bringing out their fifth album by early July which they intend to make short and concise and based on a lot of synthesizer effects. The album will be released in Canada by the bands own record label Soft Revolution and in other countries by Vagrant Records. The music style of this group has been termed by fans as soft, beautiful and eloquent Indie pop or rock with a mix of nimble production, lush instrumentation and meaningful lyrics. The bands style has undergone a lot of changes from the initial electronic pop-sound to the more recent rock-based instrumentation.
The troupe has so far bought out eleven productions with an eclectic mix of albums, solos, title tracks and remixes; these are A lot of little lies for the sake of one big truth, Nightsongs, The Comeback, Dead child stars, Heart, Set yourself on fire, Do you trust your friends, In our bedroom after the war, Sad robots, Fairytale of New York and The five ghosts. This Indie pop band has been nominated twice for Juno awards for Heart and Set yourself on fire respectively and once for the Polaris Music Prize for In our bedroom after the war.
All Indie rock fans are eagerly awaiting the next release of Stars, the band which has undoubtedly conquered the minds and hearts of this music driven generation.
