#songoftheday / VIDEO: Maudlin Strangers – “Overdose”

Maudlin Strangers is the current project of vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jake Hays, an all-around one man band and a talented one at that.  “Overdose” is the title track from his forthcoming EP, which we are dying to hear now.   As dark as it is seductive, the electro-embellished song is centered around a thick, deep bass guitar line that immediately hypnotizes you.  That said, Hays’ vocals are equally as seductive, falling into the dark soul/R&B territory where The Weeknd spends much of his time.  As if all of this wasn’t mesmerizing enough, the video puts you in a trance as Hays sits there, singing in the shadows, while all manner of things are shown on three video screens surrounding him.  It’s like watching someone’s art installation project at a trendy art show, really.   Kudos to Timothy Garrett and Alvaro Navarro, who crafted it together.
