Critically acclaimed indie artists Stars are returning to Singapore to perform live with their latest tunes.

The Canadian indie-rock band will perform at the Kallang Theatre on Feb 19, playing songs from their new album, The North (2012), which many music critics have lauded as a pleasant pop gem that shows off their solid songcraft.

The North, Stars' sixth studio album, was written in the Laurentians, a mountain region in Quebec, north of Montreal, where the band stayed in a rented house for 10 days.

Vocalist and guitarist Amy Millan, 39, said in a telephone interview from Switzerland, where Stars was touring recently: "What works best for us is when we got together and rent a beautiful house far away from the city, and hunker down, have meals with each other. It makes it more natural for us to come together to write in that environment."
