It’s only been two years since the last Stars album, but it feels like it’s been much longer. Maybe that’s because their last album, the gorgeous Set Yourself On Fire, was a career defining moment for them. While their previous work was beautiful low-key pop (a good thing), SYOF stepped beyond the bounds of what pop music can be, with it’s grandiose compositions, bittersweet lyrics, and most importantly, the interplay between Campbell ‘s and Millan’s vocals. Now, a few weeks after they announced their new album, In Our Bedroom After The War, the first song from that album has been sent out. Based purely on first impressions, it sounds like Stars are returning to a more electronic style, such as that on their debut, Nightsongs. However, they haven’t forgotten the lessons they learned with SYOF. The grand compositions remain, as do the sincerity and crystalline-like smoothness of the vocals. In Our Bedroom After The War is due out September 25th, on Arts & Crafts.
