There’s something to be said about the appeal of pop music, you might be the hippest person around that turns their nose up at simply the word pop – but in instances like this, the appeal is irrefutable.
Duo Born Stranger have since the previous release gone solo, with Maddox Jones’ vocal efforts now defining the outstanding pop sound. Latest effort Last Night On Earth is about making the most of every moment and is a touching ode to a close friend’s passing. The empowering message is matched by the powerful instrumental provided by heavyweight producer Yoad Nevo (Sia, Goldfrapp).
The organic sounds of the vocals and guitars weave in perfectly with the electronics of the synths and drum machines, in the same way that pop influences across the musical spectrum peppered throughout work in perfect synergy. Last Night On Earth is refreshingly iconic, and Born Stranger is well on it’s way to becoming a household name.
