Ay Wing - 'Strange'
We're really enjoying the wonky, slightly DIY feeling pop sounds of Berlin-based, Swedish artist Ay Wing. In her new single 'Strange' Ay Wing questions our societal obsession with social media, and our narcissistic fixation with our projected online image.
Dominated by the immediately adhesive lyrical hook 'Are you strange, afraid to be forgotten?', this song is a serious ear-worm and will soon have you forgetting all inhibitions and preconceived notions of cool; Perhaps even going so far as one blogger (who shall remain nameless) did; putting their mobile down and logging out of twitter, to better revel in a good pop song, one with wonderfully kitsch synth-sounds, over compressed percussion, and a hook that makes you smile.
