"Stranger" by MOTHXR
Brooklyn's MOTHXR are Jimmy Giannopoulos, Darren Will, Penn Badgley and Simon Oscroft. I don't know whether they aim to rule the world, but I'm quite happy to let them boss my ears for the three minutes and fifteen seconds of "Stranger". And then I'll let them do it again. I'm a bit easy that way. "Stranger" is their fourth single, and follows five shows at CMJ and a European tour. These guys are masters with the groove and earworm hook, and I want to hear a lot more from them.
