The Modern Strangers
are ending the year strong — today sharing the music video for their single 'Red Strip Lights'. The release of the single in October and now the video comes after they unveiled their EP Meltdown Mechanics earlier this year.

The song is about someone who is troubled and is trying to find a club that is still open. On the video, they say "We recorded the video the day after we got back from touring, we really wanted to work with Toby the director, as he's a brilliant animator too (he did the 'Coco Hello' lyric video). The Idea was to create a live performance against a green screen to let Toby do his magic.  Probably helps it's in red too; Not sure we looked our best after a few weeks away..."

If you're in London, Manchester or Coventry, you can catch The Modern Strangers performing on 7th, 8th and 9th February. More information is available here.
