(July 7, 2014 -- New York- NY) The video for Chris Malinchak’s brand new single “Stranger” featuring Mikky Ekko premiered today on VEVO. Click here to watch it now! “ Stranger” will be available for sale at all digital providers tomorrow, July 8th via Ultra Music/Sony Music UK/RCA Records.
Directed by famed lensmen Mark Seliger, the video for “Stranger” is a snapshot of a carefree summer day in New York City, “circa 1982”as described by Seliger, serving as a perfect accompaniment to a song that Pigeons and Planes raved about calling it 2014’s “summer anthem.” Mass Appeal also picked up on the vibe by describing “Stranger” as “a reminder of an era that reigned with smooth guitar licks and rolling bass lines that you could roller skate to.” The UK Guardian also wrote:“’Stranger’ pushes pop's current disco obsession through a Pharrell-esque filter, with Ekko's deliriously carefree vocals…weaving in and out of a chunky bassline and an overall sense of sun-dappled delirium.”
“Stranger” premiered last month on BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong show as Malinchak’s third “Essential New Tune” and quickly topped the Hypemachine chart. “Stranger” marks a distinct new sound for the talented New Jersey songwriter/composer/producer/musician, combining a dizzying contemporary take on soulful funk and glitter ball disco along with a stunning vocal from Grammy-nominated RCA recording artist Mikky Ekko.
