Song of the Day: Stars, "The Night Starts Here"

Song of the Day: Stars, "The Night Starts Here"

Some songs just play like the soundtrack for a movie scene waiting to be filmed. Case in point: the new tune from Montreal five-piece Stars, "The Night Starts Here." Listening to it, I can visualize the moment in the hypothetical film: After overcoming some type of adversity, a young woman (possibly played by Natalie Portman) heads out to a swanky nightclub, smiling as the lights swirl around her, and takes the first step toward reclaiming her moxie.

Ok, so I got a little carried away, but listen to the song and you'll see what I mean. Featuring enchanting boy-girl vocals from Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell (also of Memphis), the song will appear on Stars' next album, In Our Bedroom After the War, due out in September. Unlike 2004's Set Yourself on Fire — which, as the name suggests, was somewhat dark and eerie — "The Night Starts Here" suggests a poppier yet still very ethereal direction. To hear the song and tell me what you think,

A little repetative-y techno-ish for my taste, but I COMPLETELY agree on the movie scene! This song does make me want to check out the rest of the album, I looove the girl-guy interplay on the vocals.
