Seven Lions have released a new single titled ‘Strangers’ in collaboration with Myon & Shane 54 and featuring Tove Lo. Yet, how could they possibly be considered strangers in the E/DM world with their stunning popularity?

The intro of ‘Strangers’ has a light yet sizzling feeling, with a subtle build-up drive that plays in the background rather than the cliché and loud foreground approach. Then, it turns into a snappy kick with downward spirals that just makes hips go round and round.

The female vocals and lyrics along with piano chords are isolated in the breakdown, before the sound layers are added one by one to introduce percussion and other melodic layers. The Dubstep components come in very softly and gradually without any forced instances of heavy drops or excessively annoying wobbles, which means the combination of genres are well balanced.

Combining Pop, Trance and Dubstep together in such a graceful manner allows the track to be relaxing yet groovy at the same time, and it really provides a pleasurable yet interesting listening experience. I give ‘Strangers’ (radio edit and extended mix) a 10/10!

Melody 10/10
Lyrics 10/10
Creativity 10/10
Transitions 10/10
Overall rating 10/10
