With each successive single released off of his forthcoming FANTAST album, Claptone‘s musical prowess grows “Stronger.”

As the days leading up to the June 8 arrival of the masked marvel’s sophomore outing dwindle, Claptone deepens the intrigue that envelops FANTAST with the fifth single from the project, “Stronger.”

“Stronger” reacquaints listeners with the tonal purity of “Stay The Night” singer Ben Duffy‘s vocals, but signals a shift from the clear house orientation of the earlier single. Distinct from previous FANTAST releases, including “In The Night,” “Under the Moon,” and “Birdsong,” “Stronger” couples Duffy’s vocals with punctuating pop-esque synth work that fluidly ebbs and flow in pace with Duffy’s verses. “Stronger,” however, can be likened to “Birdsong” in that both tracks mark a departure from the piano-driven aesthetic that has remained prominent on “Stay The Night,” “In The Night,” and “Under the Moon.”
