Fresh off of their appearance at SXSW, Canadian darkwave duo STRVNGERS are premiering the video for their anthemic track “This Is Not A Phase”.
The song is featured on Maria Joaquin and KC’s forthcoming LP Amor/Noir, has a title and refrain that is possibly reminiscent of a line from the classic Dan O’Bannon zombie flick Return Of The Living Dead.
On the song’s theme, vocalist Maria Joaquin explains:
“We have always felt as outsiders for how they express themselves, and that feeling of being disregarded has followed them their whole lives. Now as adults, they have learned to embrace and cultivate it. There is a line from the song that sums up the mentality of the video “We are the dark, we are the lonely, and we love life this way.” At the end of the day, if you are strange, weird, or queer – trust that you are not alone and this video reflects that.”
Amor/Noir will be released via Negative Gain on April 20th.
