Stars share ‘No One Is Lost’ music video
Canadian indie-pop STARS premiered a music video for the title-track off last year’s seventh studio album No One Is Lost. And although the band is not really fan of shooting music videos they found a way to work around the problem. Instead they they made a little movie as they told Billboard: ‘Our little movie is about time, and how fast it passes, and whether you should keep doing what you do until you die, or try something else before it’s too late,’ explains lead singer Torquil Campbell. He continues: ‘You will see some lovely footage of Mexico City, a couple of semi-hilarious/semi-depressing conversations, and Amy channeling Meryl Streep.’ Watch the really wonderful new STARS video right here.
