N.Z wunderkind MAALA continues to rise to the top at a meteoric pace, and about 5 seconds into the rollercoaster journey through his imagination that is Stranger it becomes pretty darn clear why. Today, MAALA is premiering the official visuals for the track.
Powered by the oh so slightest of grooves, MAALA really lets the vocals tell the tale on the track, so you better shut up and let the man speak. Following the night time-turned-dawn adventures of a group of young adults, the 3:00am pace of the clip perfectly matches the 3:00am pace of the song. MAALA worked with Jordan Arts for the video, with the simple premise of injecting youthful energy with soft tinges of adolescent angst.
From the man himself, Stranger is for all the lonely hearts in the world. A gentle reminder that we aren’t alone spoken in an optimistic tone.
MAALA burst onto on the scene back in 2015 with his single Touch – with a name, by the way, chosen from a pile of random Scrabble letters. Since then, the dude’s gone on to blow the mind of known fan Zane Lowe, and many a fan in the process.
Stranger is taken from his debut album Composure which was unveiled on July 29th. Do your ears a favour and grab a copy here.
