British screamos ENTER SHIKARI launched their
7th LP, called A Kiss For The Whole World last April.

Last year Australian rock songstress AViVA toured with ES. The friendship let to this new pithy piece called STRANGERS. An up/down, forth/back corker with erupting swing moods.

Rou Reynolds (frontman ES): “AViVA has such a great voice – I can still hear her operatic warm-ups, echoing around the backstage rooms! – so it was a pleasure to sing with her on the track. Rob and I got to visit her at home on the beautiful coast of New South Wales and work together on what would become STRANGERS, the story of newly found freedom from a suffocating relationship.”

AViVA: ““We all share a deep passion for music, and together, we’ve crafted something truly special that I believe our fans will love. The song has been worked on across multiple countries, and time zones, and we were even lucky enough to do the vocal recording together at my home studio. The song continues to explore a concept I see as a through-line in much of my artistic work. The loss of connection, and isolation that follows. the line ‘we’re just strangers now’ really sums it up, but I think people will really connect with the rawness of this song, be it the loss of a romantic relationship or losing a friend, that pain often lingers with us for a long time.”
