Stars aren’t the first band to depict love as a battlefield, but on albums like 2004’s Set Yourself on Fire and 2007’s In Our Bedroom After the War, they depict the casualties in unusually graphic detail. The group’s latest, The Five Ghosts, is a typically bitter set of duets between singers Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell set to bright, synth-laced pop arrangements that climb happily skyward, as if unaware of the anger and tension that saturate the band’s lyrics.
