STRABE have introduced themselves with their dazzling single, “Life on Pause” via [PIAS] Recordings. “Life On Pause” serves as the mysterious band’s first music since signing to [PIAS] and follows the success of viral (and subsequently, prophetic) track “Best Worst Year”. STRABE’s debut project will follow this summer.
“Life on Pause” is an instant, affecting and quietly anthemic starting point to the compelling story of STRABE. Channelling influences of alternative pop, electronic music, and Gen Z’s trial-and-error experiences of growing up ‘On Pause’, the track represents for singer Angelica (originally from Scotland) the idea “of appreciating being in the moment, and taking the time to be still.”
For producer Emmet meanwhile – born in Ireland – the stasis-themed single emerged from his year repeating college and (he says) “how great creativity can come if you accept that it takes time, and the need to be patient.”
