Changes from Stars on Vimeo.

 

“(The North) rewards exploration with moments that alternately swoon, seethe, swing and paralyze.” – NPR

“what’s remarkable about The North is how unforced it sounds while conjuring the ghosts of past glories” – Pitchfork

“The band has grown. The music has evolved. But the message of feeling alive despite all odds is more apparent than ever.” –Paste

“Stars have once more played out thoughts and ponderings to a classical framework, fleshed out with an engaging vernacular and choruses that explode.” – Filter

“Anthemic dancefloor-filling snap…sure to thrill dedicated Stars watchers” – Alternative Press

“Stars have been making excellent music for so long… and have only gotten better and generally less fussy with age. With the release of ‘The North’ this month, Stars have never sounded more at ease.” – Stereogum

“a masterpiece” – Seattle Times

“Touch of sonic glitter and melodic energy gives a little kick to the group’s gently grand compositions, and it goes a long way—there’s a fresh, focused vibe across The North” – AV Club
