Last year, New Zealand band Popstrangers moved to London and put out a pair of songs to mark that change in their lives. One of those songs was called “Fortuna,” and though the song doesn’t appear on the band’s newly announced album, Fortuna, that single seems to have been an indication of where Popstrangers are headed. So where are they headed? New single “Country Kills” pushes them into even more lush and melancholic territory, without sacrificing any of their pop bounce. Listen to it below.
Fortuna is out 5/27 via Carpark.
