Against The Current Release Arena-Rock Anthem “silent stranger”

We all love a powerful frontwoman, and Against The Current’s Chrissy Costanza fits the bill. The band’s new single “silent stranger” introduces fans to their “nightmare era,” which is chock-full of black and white imagery and a dark-pop edge that elevates their classic sound. It’s all about shedding the persona they’ve created for themselves and the challenges of reclaiming their authentic identity. There comes a point when the reflection in the mirror looks like a complete stranger, which Costanza sings in the lyrics, “I know all the lies/I brought to life/Now I don’t know how to be someone real/Hate that I fake the way that I feel.” Its electric full-band arrangement adds to her words’ poignancy and creates a dynamic worthy of a crowd sing-along. 

The new single is paired with an artistic music video, symbolizing the self-reflective themes of the track through mirror imagery and a semi-transparent box. As is the case with all of Against The Current’s visuals, the video is aesthetically pleasing, all while representing the experience of becoming a shadow of who you once were. Each band member’s performance is cathartic and passionate, giving “silent stranger” a captivating new energy after watching. 

Against The Current is celebrating their new music on their Nightmares & Daydreams 2023 World Tour! Performing in Latin America, Hawaii, Australia, Asia, and Europe, fans can catch the band playing a longer headlining set full of old and new bangers. Plus, they’re bringing LØLØ and Call Me Amour along for the ride, which will make for a killer lineup of pop-punk and alt-pop vibes. Make sure you snag tickets to the band’s international tour dates here.
