Mt. Joy “Strangers” – Listen

Oh what a slick sound Mt. Joy have on their new double A side single of which ‘Strangers‘ is one A-side.  Perhaps it’s because they’ve been working with producer Tucker Martin – there’s a hint of that My Morning Jacket to the new song.  maybe it’s the unusually prominent keyboards from Jackie Miclau.  Anyway, this is just a whistle wetter – there’ll be a new album  out on  the 5th of June,  it’ll be called ‘Rearrange Us‘.

Strangers‘ has Matt Quinn declaring that he’s so over that girl, he’s on the look-out for new love “Well I guess I’ll have to fall in love with strangers  / Ride through New York City like I’m famous“, before heading to a chorus that leaves no doubts : “‘Cause I am over you / I am over you / And I am over you / I am over you / I am over you, and I am over you.”  Yeah – he’s not over her.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
