FRESH: ‘Strangers’ – Between Giants

Between Giants discuss two people becoming “Strangers”.

by Christopher Smith

Between Giants are a buzzing indie-rock trio from Brooklyn, NY. Comprised of three award-winning Northeast-based singer/producer/multi-instrumentalists Tyler John, Hans Massaquoi, and Pat Williams – the band is just about to break. The three blend their unique styles and influences to craft a sophisticated coalescence of gritty indie-rock that has brought them local and national attention.

Led by Tyler John’s passionate lyrics and iconic performances, their diverse genre-mashing and innovative song writing has seen them be nominated for three Independent Music Awards, receive numerous festival slots, have the capacity to self-orchestrate a nearly sold out 17 city east coast tour within just a year of the projects inception, and clear over 250,000 streams worldwide on their debut album “Jupiter”.

The release of their experimental rock track “November Beaches” began a new chapter for the band, as they turn from their previous infectious summer ready pop soundscape to a more organic, raw and unfiltered approach that saw the track clear 50,000 streams to date. Describing their latest track, “Strangers”, the group tell us: “Very rarely do we write instrumentation before words. But with this one, we wanted to capture the emotion in the production. This track is about loving someone and feeling them slowly slip away”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
