The Long Ear

Throughout the last decade, Strange Ranger have been crafting seamless indie music that feels both already classic and precisely of its time. From Daymoon's strains of the Microphones by way of the Pacific Northwest-era indie scene to the dark elation and Cure-reminiscent stylings of Remembering the Rockets theyve become one of the rare standouts of a crop of bands that have managed to grow up with us. More than just a stopgap along that progression, the new mixtape entitled No Light In Heaven holds some of the bands most experimental and ambitious work yet. Stitched together through a series of sessions at both a house in rural NY and Strange Rangers home studios in both Philadelphia and NYC (where Eiger and Woodman moved in 2021], the mixtape possesses something both abstract and astute; the product of a band in transition and a group of people making something effortlessly transcendental out of their new surroundings. Heralded as unpredictable and expansive, a thrilling document of a band with an ever-changing muse, with songs that are packed with hooks and an abundance of feeling (Stereogum). This outpouring of evocative emotion makes the bands more traditional song structures read like a new breed of pop music in its purest form. From Needing Yous effervescent euphoria to string-laden album closer Its You, the record seamlessly fuses together a multitude of genres, where the industrial punch of In Hell sits alongside the chopped up vocals and melodic keys of Get Right Up to the Mic. "No Light in Heaven" marks the beginning of a bold new era for the band & the groups first release with Fire Talk.
