Stars will be making their bi-annual appearance at Mr. Smalls Theatre Sunday night in support of their 2017 release, There is no Love in Fluorescent Light. This is their 9th studio album since 2001. The Toronto based band is led by multi instrumentalist Torquil Campbell.
Stars are indie pop at its best and have said to have drawn influence from Morrissey and The Smiths. In an interview with Under the Radar website, Campbell says, “You can draw the DNA of that back to our mutual love of The Smiths. I think the mutual feeling of what made The Smiths a special band brought Stars into a crystallized place right off the top. We were like, ‘We want to be a band that has the same influence on people that The Smiths had on us.
There is no Love in Fluorescent Light is not the groups best album but sure has some gems like, “Privilege” and “Real Thing.” If you are looking to get acquainted with the Canadian rockers look to 2004’s Set Yourself on Fire.
