Now touring on their fabulous new album, The North, Stars are renowned for the videos that accompany their brand of Canadian pop. From nude women dancing with tails to juiced up muscle heads mouthing the words “We Don’t Want Your Body,” the lack of rhyme and reason behind on-screen accompaniments to releases has always given the Montreal darlings an extra appeal.
On their video for “Tanlines,” the band goes a little more conservative, taking a Mr. Roger’s approach to their third single from The North. No there’s no sweater and loafers, but the quintet are shrunk down to pocket-size equivalents before playing in front of an automated cityscape. With Amy Millan effervescent, the video is a reminder that Stars, even after their sixth full-length album, are as fresh as ever.
