Songfacts®:

  • The song's music video was shot in Johannesburg, South Africa, and masterminded by Kristin-Lee Moolman alongside frequent collaborator and stylist IB Kamara. The visual combines picturesque South African scenes with shots of cross-dressers, exploring the taboo the region still holds around the subject.

    Speaking about their aspirations for the clip, Kristin-Lee Moolman & IB Kamara said, "We wanted to make a film that celebrates two dancers from Johannesburg and that feeling of being young and creating your own universe within your environment and being able to express yourself in any shape or form."
  • South Africa is woven into the fabric of Little Dragon's DNA, thanks to drummer Erik Bodin. Lead singer Yukimi explained:

    "Both Nabuma Rubberband and Season High have moments inspired by South African music. It all started with Erik, who is married to a South African, coming home from his visits with a hard drive full of mixes and tracks of South African house. We started listening to his favourite tracks on the road, the fatness and the groove combined with the electronics had us hooked. Having the 'Strobe Light' video made there felt like the perfect place. Somehow we feel like our music is truly understood there."
