Music Video Of The Day: Stars 'Backlines'

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 21, 2014 11:20PM

Canadian indie rockers Stars bring their blend of shimmering, melodic rock and pop to The Vic this evening. If you aren't familiar with Stars but the vocals sounds familiar, it might be because lead singer Amy Millan has put her airy, beautiful touch on numerous recordings and live shows with Broken Social Scene. Stars and BSS have a long history together and share many members. And Millan's vocals are so pure and crystal clear, like many other female vocalist from Canada (Emily Haines, Feist, Lisa Lobsinger), that we have to stop and wonder what in the water up north is creating some of the most lovely vocals in the music industry.

Enjoy the track "Backlines" from Stars below and grab a ticket to their show this evening here.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
