Strangers, you might remember threw an EP our way at the start of November, and I recall it being rather brilliant. As it's four days until Christmas, it's probably about time to bring in some festive tunes. The London trio dropped 'This Year' just over a week ago. Four great minutes of sincere pop that ooze a certain retrospective musing, it's a tale of loss. Hopeful determination to step into the new year with a new lease of life seeps from within the lush melodies and pitch perfect vocals. 'This Year' is a fantastically inspirational number, and is marking the way for what's sure to be a wonderful 2012 for Strangers! Hear it above, and watch the somewhat mesmerising video accompaniment that goes along with it. Excellent!
