Troi Irons just wants to rock.
So that’s exactly what she does in the fiery new live music video for “Stranger,” a clip that is a reflection of who she really is, and how she wants to be seen by the world.
“This ‘Strangers’ video is my first visual apart from a major label,” Irons explained in an email. “There are a couple music videos up that I spent weeks writing treatments and storyboards and building teams to make, only to have a director come and paint over my vision because my name wasn’t on the check paying them. So for this video, I wanted to peel it back to the very basics and build a good foundation. This is me in true, raw form as a musician.”
A diehard rocker since she was a kid, Irons was given a guitar at the age of eleven by her grandparents. Teaching herself how to play it through a copy of Green Day’s American Idiot, she keeps the spirit of rock and roll alive with echoes of Garbage, The Dead Weather, and classic Seattle grunge.
With two EPs already under her belt—Turbulence (2016) and Antihero (2018)—Irons is currently crafting her full-length debut, Lost Angels. While we wait for the album, turn up “Strangers” below and rock out.
