Born Stranger are Maddox-Jones and Raife Hacking, an electronic-pop duo that craft motivating synth-pop.
Jumping back into action in 2018, ‘Pain’ is the first single to release this year – a track filled with incredibly catchy pop sensibilities and afrobeat rhythms providing a great atmosphere within seconds. Co-produced and mixed by Yoad Nevo (Sia, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp), the track lends its hand to London based singer-songwriter Vivienne Chi who accompanies Maddox Jones’ vocal duties, adding another perspective and personality to the love story. Listen here.
Born Stranger vocalist, Maddox comments more about the track.. “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.“
