Certainly Strange is based in Orange County, CA, and the song “Oxygen” is their newest release. This song is uniquely addicting in that it successfully mixes components of both Country and EDM Electronic genres.
Starting with intoxicating images in the verses like “like a river running wild/ I’ve never felt more wild and been more free” and “leaving your mark on my heart/ I wouldn’t want it any other way” and “just like a Santorini sky the beauty of the world rests in your eyes.” The refrain, “I need your love like I need oxygen” is a passionate statement that builds into the gratifying drop. The drop almost feels like a breath of air, which makes the meaning of the song even more powerful. It’s filled with emotional lyrics to connect to, and musically is very danceable.
