Stars – Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It

September 6, 2012

They say pop culture nostalgia goes in 40-year cycles — that, for example, the tight pants of the current generation can be attributed to a hankering for the skin-tight, post bellbottom period of “cool.” Stars, with their warm blanket synth lines and a snare that adds that bop-and-pop of any epic 80s track, feels like they were born out of another era. “Hold On When You Get Love…” is a track that doesn’t just feel stylistically nostalgic, but also emotionally nostalgic. Torquil Campbell’s croons ache for a time and a place that feels far away from 2012, a year that doesn’t evoke the melodramatic romanticism that defined so much of the 80s.
