The brand new single from KuBO is available today for pre-order on iTunes. At the same time the band also launched the official video for the track. “Strange”, in aid of the Terrance Higgins Trust Cymru (Wales), and in tribute to the New Romantic trail blazer Steve Strange, will be available to download worldwide from Friday 14th August 2015 on. The sleeve artwork is taken from ‘Saint Steve Strange’ by New York based artist Matthew Lineham, part of his ‘New Wave Saints’ Series.
Says the band: “The song itself focuses on Steve’s legacy and his unique vision for not only who he was, but how he wanted to portray himself to the world as an artist. He became more than just ‘Fade to Grey’, more than an oddity on the cover of a magazine. He become an Icon for a moment in time, the face of a small group of outsiders, who decided the 80’s was their decade, and it was ok to be strange.”
The track will be arriving in 2 unique versions: the ‘Synthwave Mix’ and ‘Darkwave Mix’. Below is the official video.
