In a world where finite resources are hoarded by corrupt leaders who rule with an iron fist and darkness enshrouds all who walk in their shadow, two heroes have emerged to shine ray of hope. With the power of raw, unadulterated rock music, they strike a blow against the tyrannical forces of evil.

Object Permanence

by Strangelight

We're Strangelight from Oakland, CA. Our debut album, Adult Themes was released on October 23rd. This track, Object Permanence, is one of my favorites on the album. A blast to play live, and an example of the benefits of not overthinking things. Not that we're ever in danger of that.
