This is the first song by Malika that we’ve heard and we are instantly hooked.
Starting with gorgeous jazz-inspired piano chords, the Jae Eaux-produced track quickly develops with Malika’s soulful words about a lost long coupled with subtle choir-backing vocals.
Speaking on ‘Stranger Things’, Malika explains,
“Stranger Things is one of THE MOST personal songs I’ve written, it describes a real moment in time for me, and a real struggle between two people. For me it was necessary to tell this story this way. When I got back in the studio to work on new music it was with the idea of saying what I wanted to say, making what I wanted to make, without restriction. And I think you can hear that and feel that on Stranger things. Ultimately my hope is always to connect with people. But especially with this new set of music, I hope that others who have had the same or similar struggles find, or listen to, Stranger Things and the EP ‘Tension’ when it comes out next year and feel connected.”
