The Stars – Set yourself on Fire

2. oktober 2008

The first time, in your backyard
Underneath the plastic sheeting
Outside, it was pouring
And we were drunk as shit

Next time, at a party
When all our friends were there
There’s nothing like their mattresses
Underneath the stair

The third time, in the doorway
Lights all on around us
And the audience beside us
And the old man watching from a tree

Fourth time, I said that’s it
You’ve agreed to give me everything
Now I’ve got to ask you one thing
Keep doing that forever

Fifth time in your bedroom
And finally, we rested
And you leaned upon your elbow
And began to speak to me

But you stopped yourself and kissed me
And I grabbed your WRIST and told you
I know, I know, I know
I feel the same as you

And everyday, it’s changed since then
In every way, I’ve changed since then
And everyday, it’s changed since then
In every way, I’ve changed since then

Driven outside
I’ve driven you
Driven outside
I’ve driven you

For snart længe siden købte jeg det canadiske band The Stars tredje album Set yourself on Fire og de sidste dage har den ligget pÃ¥ min mp3-afspiller og har krøbet ind under huden pÃ¥ mig. Bandets line-up har været Torquil Cambell, Amy Millan, Evan Cranley, Chris Seligman og Pat McGee, og de spiller en meget melodiøs indie-rock med vægt pÃ¥ velklingende vokalarbejde, fortællende tekster og et kraftig snert af electronicaens lydverden. Set Your Self On Fire blev deres store gennembrud i hjemlandet og andre steder, hvor singleudspillet “Ageless Beauty” blev et hit. ForstÃ¥eligt nok. For det har sin egen støjende, iørefaldende skønhed. Ialt har gruppen udgivet fire albums og en EP. Seneste album er In Our Bedroom After The War.

Min favoritsang er ovenstÃ¥ende lille sang – The First Five Times – om forelskelsens kaninhoppe-og-bollerier-og hvad deraf følger…
