STARS LIVE IN JAKARTA – 12 FEBRUARY 2016
15 years since the release of their debut album, Canadian indie pop darlings, STARS are finally heading to Jakarta, Indonesia for their first ever live performance.
Originally formed in Toronto in 1998 by vocalist Torquil Campbell and keyboardist Chris Seligman, they were later joined by Evan Cranley (bass), Amy Millan (vocals/guitars) and Pat McGee (drums).
Like their celestial namesake, Stars only come out at night. It’s been 14 years since the Montreal band debuted with an album of intimate synth-pop whispers titled Nightsongs, but really, any of the increasingly assertive and sonically elaborate records they’ve released since could be named that.
Whether between the sheets or on the streets, the nighttime is when the most pivotal moments of your life play out: the drunken dusk-to-dawn hangs through which eternal friendships are forged; the knowing glance across the dancefloor that leads to exchanged phone numbers, that ominous 3 a.m. phone call from the hospital; the
decision to turn a new leaf that can only come when you’ve spent five despairing hours staring at a ceiling fan.
These are the worlds that Stars songs inhabit, to show us that, even in our most vulnerable and naked states, we are never truly alone.
Look forward to singing along to these profound pop gems, including tracks from the aforementioned debut, Heart (2003), Set Yourself On Fire (2004), In Our Bedroom After the War (2007), The Five Ghosts (2010), The North (2012) and their newest release, No One Is Lost. Experience it all on Friday, 12 February 2016 at the intimate setting of the elegant Soehanna Hall, located strategically at The Energy Building SCBD Jakarta.
