Plastic Messiah makes a return with his second single,”Strange”. The acoustic, indie-pop record follows up the Swedish musician’s debut (“Lose Yourself“), a song that takes on Eminem‘s earlier hit with the same title. With an emotional edge, it is a love-imbued composition he’d initially wrote for his for his girlfriend, after just a couple of month’s dating.
“It’s often too easy to just add instrument after instrument after instrument, just because you can, and in the end, the song has lost its true identity. So we did quite the opposite, the producer and I. We forced ourselves to take away instruments and ideas from both song and head, just to be in symbiosis with the song’s lyrics. Naked, straight on, and without makeup. Hard, but oh, so necessary”, the singer/songwriter says about the inspiration behind track’s acoustic feel.
The self-written song was produced, mixed and mastered by Anders Lundström. Listening to it, you will appreciate Plastic Messiah’s stunning voice and remarkable songwriting which both complement his unique sound. That being said, we can’t wait to get our hands on his upcoming album, The Fifth Horseman.
