‘Stranger (In A Sense)’ is the second single from the debut album 'Stranger' for Melbourne four-piece Grandstands, to be released on cassette in early 2016 on Whalesmouth.
The careful harmonies and intricate melodies of the single are a testament to Grandstands getting older and wiser. Lyrically, it’s that old tale of drifting apart, on a music bed that seems to drift away as you listen. It’s the sound of a cool change on a warm afternoon, sunset shadows through native leaves, a heartbreak daydream.
‘Stranger (In A Sense)’ is a natural next step for a share house ensemble that has grown up on backyard shows and kitchen recording sessions. Scrappiness gives way to craftsmanship, raw enthusiasm to real experience—but the ache and the joy of living stays the same.
