As Freud might say, "Sometimes an EDM drop is just an EDM drop."
But more often, a drop can add context and depth to a song that might otherwise simply be an excuse to get down. That's certainly the case for "It's Strange," as the ecstatic break courtesy of Chicago production duo Louis the Child throws the vulnerability underlying K. Flay's mournful verses into sharp relief. "It's Strange" keeps you dancing even as it breaks your heart -- a perfect combo that in October even garnered the attention of Taylor Swift.
Listen in as K. Flay discusses her serendipitous connection to the song's beatmakers, her Gumby-style dance moves and the personal relationships that inspired "It's Strange" in this episode of the podcast, recorded in and around San Francisco's legendary Fillmore Auditorium.
