Born Stranger is a London based electronic-pop duo comprised of members Maddox-Jones and Raife Hacking. The pair have been making outstanding strides over the last few years, with features on respected blogs including Earmilk and CLASH. Their tracks have ended up on big Spotify playlists, including ‘Factor Happy’, ‘De Camino’, ‘Spotify’s Viral 50 in Spain’ and ‘Hot New Pop Tracks’. The duo have worked with other exciting emerging talents such as London songstress Caitlyn Scarlett and, more recently, Vivienne Chi.
They have just dropped the Kinship remix of their most recent single ‘Pain’, which features Vivienne Chi on vocals. It’s an outstanding piece of electronic production, lifting an already impressive track to new heights.
“Pain is something we’ve all felt. There’s a certain romance to the pain of having your heart broken for the first time. It hurts but it’s exciting and all consuming. When you’ve felt it once it’ll never feel the same again, the more you feel it the more numb you become. This is a song for anyone who craves the reckless innocence of falling in love for the first time.” – Maddox of Born Stranger
