FOSTER HOUSE, WEERD SCIENCE and JOHN, the ASTRONAUT tease new single, “Strange Things” out November 20th
“Strange Things” - a living memoir to the f*ckery of 2020 from collaborators—Weerd Science, Mirk, Camtron 5000, and John, the Astronaut will be released November 20th. Preview "Strange Things" here: https://youtu.be/vieZAGV37aA
The ominous new track features rapper Weerd Science (more commonly known as Josh Eppard, the long time drummer for alt-rock supergroup COHEED AND CAMBRIA) dropping rich rhymes with intoxicating lyrical cadences shrouded in ominous tones. Next up is Mirk, veteran in the world of hip hop and two time RIAA certified gold producer. Music fans know Mirk as the lead singer/rapper of the eponymous alternative funk/RnB band and more recently as founder of hot new hip-hop collective FOSTER HOUSE. John, the Astronaut, the songbird of atmospheric indie rock group STELLAR YOUNG, steps out of his lead singer role to lend his artful pen and haunting timbre to the track’s chorus and pre-chorus. New age rapper Camtron 5000 - founding member of FOSTER HOUSE and possible alien life form - rounds out the roster with fast-paced wordplay and lyrics rich with pop-culture nostalgia.
Exposing eerie parallels between the angst-driven monster drama Stranger Things and this year of fright; the gripping new single pays artistic homage to the binge-worthy Netflix hit as the four wordsmiths draw on the threat of the “upside down” to spin metaphors meant to make sense of the year that never ends. Unsettling and expertly crafted; the sonic collusion of references to classic horror movies, political agendas, comic books, social media influence, and the uncertainty of our collective future brought on by a global pandemic makes “Strange Things” the unofficial theme song of 2020.
