The opposite of the jarring polar bear on it's cover, Invisible Republic
is full of smooth, easy electric pop that warms the ears by shimmering with hints of grandeur. Former Stars members Stephen Ramsay and Catherine McCandless continue to use their previous gig as a jumping point to songwriting with a refracted result; the strings take a backseat to empty space, and the low end is turned way up. Young Galaxy
works bottom to top, so much so that once you've reached the airy vocals, you're already in space instead of just looking at it.
