PREMIERE: THE MODERN STRANGERS – “RED STRIP LIGHTS”
The band’s latest self-released offering is a disco-infused, upbeat banger.
Following on from their debut EP “Meltdown Mechanics”, released in June this year, The Modern Stranger have released a new single, “Red Strip Lights”.
Fronted by brothers Max & Archie Davenport, the success of the band’s debut single “Vanilla” earned them early support from BBC Introducing in Kent and BBC Radio 1. Having spent 2017 releasing more music and performing a busy summer show schedule consisting of over 17 festivals, including a slot on the BBC Introducing stage for the Katy Perry headlined Radio 1 Big Weekend, the band are back with one of their most exciting songs to date.
Speaking about “Red Strip Lights”, they explain: “It’s actually a very young song. We wrote it at the end of summer after a long stretch of festivals. I guess you can hear that in the song. We wanted to make a tune that sat in-between ‘Coco Hello’ and ‘Margarita’ but gave a little something more. It’s about a troubled soul who you’d find out and about trying to find a club that’s still open.”
With radio support for The Modern Strangers including Radio 1, Virgin Radio, Amazing Radio and Radio X, and a feature on the BBC’s documentary The Secret Science of Pop, we can’t wait to see where this five piece goes next.
Listen to the song below, and catch The Modern Strangers at their London and Manchester headline shows on February 7th and 8th, 2019.
