The Rebel Light – Strangers

The Rebel Light Venice 4

This month’s new release from across the pond comes from the talented trio The Rebel Light. Their track ‘Strangers’ which has been received with great praise in the U.S was self-produced by the LA based group which comprises of two brothers and their cousin.

As the daylight of British spring slowly creeps through the afternoon and soon passes 6 o’clock we are reminded that the infamous summer season does in fact exist. The glowing synths and catchy choruses of this track aid us to fantasise over festival camping and Mr Freezes whilst simultaneously causing us to revel in hazy nostalgia and comparisons of The Shins and the chiming 60s. The accompanied love story video is timeless yet current and makes it known that the sync opportunities for this track are infinite.

For a scene saturated with ‘vibey’ and ‘bloggy’ tunes as of late, this track is a breath of fresh air. We can’t wait to see what the guys have in store for the future, but in the meantime, sit back, preferably in a Hawaiian shirt, and enjoy ‘Strangers’:
