A track released today from Pale Moon, “Strange Days” is described by the duo as “our most upbeat tune so far.” Twangy guitars mesh with excitable bursts of synths, as Nata’s vocals exude a playfully melodic quality. The title-referencing chorus is a burst of sunshine, fronted by peppy guitars and a suave croon. A ceaseless bassy bounce and effervescent synths converge during the mid-point bridge, guiding seamlessly into a final go-round for the hooky chorus. Pale Moon’s “Strange Days” shines with melodic contagiousness throughout.
“The idea of the video came from Nata,” Pale Moon write. “One night, years ago, we were living in the district of Barcelona on some drunken night. Nata bought a spray cream at a corner shop and started screaming random things and we thought it was hilarious. That was our only contribution to vandalism ever!”
“Strange Days” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.
