Strange Ranger have unveiled a new song, ‘Rain So Hard’. It follows last year’s ‘Raver Explanation’, a bonus track from the expanded version of their 2021 mixtape No Light in Heaven. Check it out via the accompanying video, directed by Ben Turok, below.
‘Rain So Hard’ was written while band members Isaac Eiger and Fiona Woodman were in the process of breaking up. “Towards the end of the movie Slacker, there’s a brief scene where this old guy is wandering around recording his thoughts into a tape recorder,” Eiger said in a statement. “Just kind of rambling about loss and the impossibility of understanding anything while it’s happening. I don’t know if I saw Slacker around the time when I wrote this song but when I think about the song, that guy sometimes comes to mind.”
