Ever since we heard Stars' "Theory of Relativity" in June, we've been pumped for The North to drop. Well, that day is finally here! This is the band's sixth full-length release, and it shows them extending their musical boundaries -- The North is more instrumentally traditional than anything Stars has done, at times even teetering on the edge of stadium rock. Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan are at their best, but things aren't as chillwave as they used to be. Overall it's a pretty fresh look for the band. We're into it, are you?
Hear the whole album for yourself below.
Speaking of Stars, watch the band performaing at Le Poisson Rouge.
