Strange things hide in the back of storage rooms. You never know what you’ll find rummaging in the back through old crates and boxes. Among trunks filled with old memories, next to old department store mannequins, you might even stumble upon a lightbox diorama featuring a battle between tanks and dinosaurs, soundtracked by a Canadian five-piece playing pretty dream-pop. “Backlines” is the first video off Stars‘ most recent album, The North. The piece’s epic yet quirky battle between plastic toy monsters and artillery rages around Amy Milan, decked out as a 40s jazz singer, singing smoothly into an old-school microphone. It’s a fun video for a fun song from a fantastic album.
The North is out now on ATO records.
