The Perfect Song for Summer’s End

The new album The North by Canadian band Stars comes out September 4. Their first single is “Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It,” a song I immediately fell in love with the first time I heard it. It’s a song that epitomizes Stars’ trademark pop sound—catchey, dancey, and all-around beautiful, a perfect end-of-summer song. I saw Stars a few years ago in one of my favourite venues in Vancouver: Malkin Bowl, an outdoor theatre surrounded by a ring of huge trees in the heart of Stanley Park. I absolutely love the title of the song; it says so much in one simple line. Give the song a listen here, I guarantee* you’ll love it and dare you to try and refrain yourself from dancing to it!

* guarantee not actually guaranteed.
