It’s not easy to find Electro-Pop gems these days. Luckily, the talented singer, Eivind Husebø brings hope back to listeners with a gorgeous song called “Strange”. Actually, it is a cover of Bloom, a popular Norwegian band that was active in the early 2000s. Believe it or not, Eivind’s elder brother, Kjetil, was part of this project, acquiring a good reputation with multiple performances in TV and local festivals.
According to Eivind, lyrics feel very personal and meaningful. In my opinion, it’s about overcoming fears, obstacles in order to enjoy freedom on your own. I like how passionate vocals dominate the chorus. At the same time, it is mostly driven by magical synths and electric guitars in terms of melody. Well, he certainly knows how to build up to a crescendo, and everyone should listen to “Strange” simply because it’s a pleasant take on the original.
