Europe’s rising electro-pop duo Close to Monday, composed of singer/songwriter Ann and producer Alexander, continues their series of monthly releases with their latest release, “Stranger.” This hauntingly beautiful track delves into the complexities of love, drawing listeners into a vortex of conflicting emotions and desires.

Inspired by the enigmatic themes famously explored by influential artists like Joy Division, “Stranger” is a lush and brooding exploration of the shadows within a love story. Ann and Alexander intricately weave together haunting vocals and melodies with hypnotic production, creating a sonic landscape that mirrors the tumultuous nature of dysfunctional relationships.

“The track delves into the shadows of [the characters’] love story, a complex dance where the desire to break free collides with an irresistible pull,” the band explains. “Despite their yearning to escape, each attempt only draws them back into the vicious cycle, a paradoxical realm that both torments and breathes life into their existence.”

With “Stranger,” Close to Monday offers listeners a deeply immersive experience, inviting them to confront their own memories of love and loss. The track’s mesmerizing production and instrumentation, coupled with its evocative lyrics, resonate with themes of control and freedom, leaving a lasting impression on the listener.

Close to Monday, comprised of singer/songwriter Ann and producer Alexander, has been making waves in the European music scene with their distinctive electro-pop sound. Drawing comparisons to CHVRCHES and Boy Harsher, the duo has cultivated a dedicated following of fans who are drawn to their unique musical identity.

Since its inception, Close to Monday has achieved significant milestones, including top 3 placements in the Deutsche Alternative Charts and recognition at international film festivals for its music videos. Their music serves as a guide for those on a journey of self-discovery, exploring themes of love, identity, and the human experience.

In addition to their musical endeavors, Close to Monday has unveiled a new logo inspired by the laconic sensuality of Scandinavian runes, symbolizing strength, success, and the flow of time. These ancient symbols serve as a protective shield for wanderers, guiding them on their journey and providing strength in times of need.
