"Stars" is a Canadian indie pop band. Originally formed in Toronto by vocalist Torquil Campbell and keyboardist Chris Seligman, the band relocated to New York City and then subsequently to Montreal.
Their music has been described as "beautiful, eloquent indie pop", characterized by lush instrumentation, nimble production and mixing, narrative lyrics, and soft but nuanced vocals. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/22016/Stars_Heart,http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/22017/Stars_Set_Yourself_on_Fire. The band's style has evolved from an electronic-pop sound as heard on ''Nightsongs'' to more rock-based instrumentation on their last two full-length albums, reflecting the permanent additions of singer-guitarist Amy Millan and bassist Evan Cranley on ''Heart'', and eventually drummer Pat McGee on ''Set Yourself on Fire''.
The band's breakthrough single was "Ageless Beauty", from their 2004 album ''Set Yourself on Fire''. While released to minimal fanfare in Canada in October of 2004, ''Set Yourself on Fire'' slowly gained a strong following and critical praise http://www.metacritic.com/music/artist...
