Melbourne’s Archy Stranger takes you on a sonic journey, with his new track titled ‘Last Week’. The up and coming producer/singer/songwriter explores coming to terms with inevitable change as a part of life, and growing up. ‘Last Week’ features minimal beats which blend effortlessly into his infectious vocals.
Giving this track a more rustic edge are the chords that he wrote on a vintage Hammond organ, which he transparently infuses with his electronic sounds. Archy Stranger explains further - “The initial chords and concept for 'Last Week' started on an old Hammond Organ that I got off Gumtree a few years ago. The organ was a bit run down and on the verge of being thrown away but kind of inspired a different way of playing for me and ended up leading into some interesting songwriting. The song itself was written in Autumn of this year and the changing of the seasons served as an inspiration for the lyrics on a metaphorical level as a look more broadly at the concept of change and growth through the song.”
The Tinted Records family welcomed Archy Stranger for his debut release ‘Holiday’ which propelled him into the indie-electro scene. The young producer is continuing honing his skills by collaborating with other Australian talent, most recently his work with Austen on her track ‘Too High To Cry’, which won her the triple j Unearthed Big Sound competition and reached #30 in the Australian Spotify Viral Charts. Further cementing him into the Unearthed world is his recent remix of DMA’s The End, whereby he layers his own vocals on top of the original creating a truly unique remix element.
‘Last Week’ is out now via Tinted Records.
