STRANGE RANGER – ” Rain So Hard “

Posted: March 12, 2023 in MUSIC

New York electronic quartet Strange Ranger return with their first new single of 2023, “Rain So Hard.” Clocking in at a hair under five minutes, the track is a beautiful depiction of relationship fallout and loneliness. Written as bandmates Isaac Eiger and Fiona Woodman were breaking up, “Rain So Hard” is a document of two people with immense chemistry falling out of each other’s orbit. “Any day there will be no more stars,” Eiger sings. “How do I get out of this movie now?” Woodman chimes in through a harmony. There are elements of vocal distortion, atmospheric shoegaze and grieving electronica bubbling into a sea of loss. But, most immensely, “Rain So Hard” is a striking, synthy haven. 

“Rain So Hard” is the new single from Strange Ranger available digitally on Fire Talk. Previously heralded by NPR, Stereogum, Vice, Uproxx & more, the band’s trajectory “imagines a life after indie rock” (Pitchfork). Downtempo synth eloquently buoys the dual voices of Eiger & Woodman, who together lend a melancholic hymn of both hope and desolation that expands slowly into wistful transcendence.
