Tim Muddiman and The Strange are set to release their second single ‘Rolling Stones’ after a phenomenal response from debut track ‘Wildwood Stone’.
‘Rolling Stones’ has a reminiscent feel of 80’s Depeche Mode to it but is in keeping still to a true pop edge, the song has been crafted with huge bass lines, sleazy dirty guitar riffs, wild tremolos and an instantly catchy grunge vocal melody.
Lyrically the song explains solitude and the feelings of organic change until you’re “done and gone alone”, with only music, art, yourself and your life left. ‘Rolling Stones’
The B-side track is much darker. It’s solemn! has a powerful melody, swampy guitar and a sparse but extremely intense feel. We’re told “The story behind is real and deeply personal”. Something the artist is not shy or afraid to pen.
‘The Strange’ aka ‘Tim Muddiman and The Strange’ is moving forward with a cooperative of artists and film makers getting involved in the “The Strange”. The video to accompany the new release has strong imagery and dance not often seen in a song like this. The photography, cast and narrative are sublime, unpredictable, left-field and still firmly remaining independent from their influences. It’s the same for the dirty sound and feel of the new release. ‘Rolling Stones’
