Here is something a little funky. I like exploring the edges of country music. I read somewhere once that the really interesting things in life happen on the edges of what we already have defined. And I think that what is normal or popular today definitely won’t be tomorrow. It will take something completely new and probably from the edge.
So with all that – let’s look at this new one from a group called The Rebel Light. It’s their song, Strangers.
Strangers – The Rebel Light
I can’t really figure out the lyrics. It seems to be about a couple and their interesting relationship together. There is a line in there about how strangers make the best of friends and how that way of living is better than another way. I can’t really figure it out and that’s okay. You’ll have to let me know your interpretation of the lyrics.
What really caught my attention throughout the song was the style and sound. It’s really different. I would definitely say there are some influences from the ’80s pop world. But they also sound a little like the Beatles and other groups of the oldies era. I think that’s pretty cool. You also get a feeling like these guys really know about melodies because this song (and a few of their others) are really catchy. That’s pretty cool and definitely not easy to do.
I like it. What do you think?
