    Femme Fatality takes an artful approach to electronic pop with the long awaited 2015 release Stranger. These 5 tracks temporarily set aside some of the high-energy aspects of FF in favor of minimalistic programming and a creeping pace. True-crime stories inspired the haunting synth patching and vocal stylings while lyrics tell tales of stalkers and killers in the most unlikely of places.

lyrics

we had a strip of highway
that still runs through
we had a filling station
and a car wash too

all those pretty women
and those hard working men
god fearing servants
all american

but everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

but everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before

old men with shot guns
a boy and his knife
some tried to run
some held their wives
some had to suffer
some tried to fight
in the end they laid down
those simple lives

everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round
everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before
this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before
