The 95 Allstars, a formidable indie rock trio from Surrey, UK, are back with a new powerful indie rock song full of energy. With a length of 4.48 it’s pretty long for a single release, but, it keeps you entertained until the end. 

‘The Stranger’ starts with an electrifying guitar riff and the bands musical skills become immediately apparent, setting the stage for a musical journey that is both expansive and immersive. The production quality of the track is noteworthy, with each instrument finding its own space in the mix. The drums provide a relentless heartbeat, propelling the song forward with a driving energy from the guitars, which underline the urgency of the narrative. The bass, solid and resonant, forms a robust foundation, allowing the guitars to soar and weave their sonic tapestry.

The 95 Allstars New Single The Stranger

What truly sets ‘The Stranger’ apart is the undeniable prowess of the guitar work. The 95 Allstars deliver riffs and solos that not only demand attention but also etch themselves into the listener’s memory. The interplay between the guitars and the sound fx create a rich texture, adding layers of complexity to the composition and enhancing the overall sonic experience. The vocals, delivered with both power and nuance, become the vehicle through which the story unfolds, adding a human touch to the musical spectacle. The indie / alternative vibe of this song is reminiscent of a cross between Third Eye Blind and Smashing Pumpkins… throw in a little Reef for good measure and you have the making of a BIG sound!

In conclusion, ‘The Stranger’ by The 95 Allstars is a great addition to the indie rock genre, showcasing the trio’s collective musical prowess. The guitars drive the hypnotising vocals and if you close your eyes, you see yourself standing at that summer festival with the band playing in the background. I won’t be surprised if we see The 95 Allstars on the big stage someday.
