Alexis was inspired to write and produce the new track as COVID restrictions loosen and people reconnect. “The pandemic has been tragic in many ways,” says Alexis, “but it reminded us how important feelings of freedom and connection with others are.”
Singer and guitarist Keith, who is featured on the song, agrees: “Alexis and I believe every cloud has a silver lining. ‘Strange’ is about seizing the opportunity to be reborn and realizing the importance of our connection to people and nature in an increasingly digital new world. “
“Strange” features blues, soul and Andalusian influences with the help of Keith’s voice and guitar, backed by Callaghan’s saxophone and set against Alexis’ irresistibly festive electropop production.
The clip for the single features Alexis and Keith celebrating life with friends on a sunny day at the beach. The clip can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O24V7iczaRI.
