We’ve been hanging out with these guys, we’ve had some serious fun with them, and we’ve been jumping around to their concerts. Today, we get to premiere, quite exclusively, their new single ‘Strangers Here We Come’.
This single is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP, set to be released on November 2nd; meaning it’s just around the corner. As a lot of other great stuff coming out these days, the song is recorded at Tapetown Studio, produced and mixed by Rasmus Bredvig and the band’s own Sejer Villadsen.
Now, ‘Strangers Here We Come’ is a song you can put on and dance to. Well, it might turn out to be one of those dance moves looking a lot like “jumping around like a maniac”. It might be the steady (and impressive) drums and the wildness, that does that. Then after a few takes, you wanna stop up and listen to the lyrics; it feels like there’s something there you need to explore here. All of a sudden you realize, that this song has got something to say on one of those current ‘hot button issues’; the encounter with strangers and the unknown! Oh yes, dangerous path, but it really works out here. The lyrics are sharp, and the delivery has got edge. Real, authentic edge and no BS.
Tin Can Telescope themselves haven’t said anything about post-punk, which is unlike what most bands do these days. But, it’s as if their garage-rock have been turned a notch towards punk. It feels like there’s a bit more anger and frustration involved this time, which might come from the topic, but even though it’s fast and sprinkled with frustrations, it’s still delivered with that almost signature-like Tin Can Telescope charm.
Press play, dance around and remember: “There’s a billion people or more on earth, and we will all eventually die”
