Rising soul artist Celeste is back with haunting new single Strange, a wonderful piece of music. I really like the mellow yet powerful melodies which create an amazing soundscape. Besides, Celeste her vocal performance is breath-taking, she sings with so much passion. Furthermore, I also adore the wonderful atmospheres!
The story behind the track is just like the sound very impressive. Celeste wrote Strange in Los Angeles last November, after driving down the freeway and seeing plumes of smoke emerging from the California wildfires. “Immediately I found myself becoming quite overwhelmed,” she recalls. “I began to think of all the destruction the fires caused, the loss, the isolation, people finding themselves in a situation where they have no home, no sense of familiarity. In the first verse I talk about the breakdown of certain relationships, when the burning passion or the fire goes out and you’re left with the remnants of smoke and ash. ‘I tried for you, tried to see through all the smoke but it wouldn’t move…’ Although the news about the fire wasn’t the direct inspiration for the song, it made me feel something I could truly understand that day, and opened me up to my own personal experiences of loss.”
