City And Colour Muses Over The Unfathomable Nature Of Human Bond In “Strangers”

You never know what’s going on in people’s brains

Toronto-based artist City and Colours takes us in an existential reflection of human bond in his single “Strangers” where he shuffles through the unexpected – yet familiar – ways we find are taken aback by someone thoughts or actions that doesn’t match our expectations. Through glittering strings and gauzy vibrato, City and Colour carves the echoing atmosphere of our own minds when we’re flooded with thoughts about what the other person might be thinking. Stream below:

“‘Strangers’ is about how you will never truly know another human being,” shared City And Colour’s Dallas Green. “You’ll never really understand what it’s like to be inside someone else’s brain or heart. So, we need to appreciate the differences. If we do, maybe we can live better with one another.”

The track is from City and Cololour’s upcoming LP, which will be out this fall via Still Records. He will be playing at festivals and kicking off his summer/fall tour soon, so go see him:
