Enter Shikari and AViVA have released their collaborative new single STRANGERS. 

“AViVA has has such a great voice (I can still hear her operatic warm ups, echoing around the backstage rooms!), so it was a pleasure to sing with her on the track,” says lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds. “Rob and I got to visit her at home on the beautiful coast of New South Wales and work together on what would become Strangers, the story of newly found freedom from a suffocating relationship.”

“Teaming up with Enter Shikari for this project has been an incredible experience,” AViVA adds. “After touring with them in 2022 we thought it would be fun to work on a song together and Strangers just seemed perfect.

“We all share a deep passion for music, and together, we’ve crafted something truly special that I believe our fans will love. The song has been worked on across multiple countries, and time zones, and we were even lucky enough to do the vocal recording together at my home studio. The song continues to explore a concept I see as a throughline in much of my artistic work. The loss of connection, and isolation that follows. the line ‘we’re just strangers now’ really sums it up, but I think people will really connect with the rawness of this song, be it the loss of a romantic relationship or losing a friend, that pain often lingers with us for a long time.”
