Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Anand Wilder explained to Drowned In Sound: "'Strange Reunions' was a really stupid song that I wrote, and I cut it up and turned it into this really weird piece that goes from 5/4 to 6/4 to 5/4 back to 4/4. It was really my attempt at ridiculous time signature changes that bands like Dirty Projectors will effortlessly use in songs. But the subject is the debate between atheists and super religious fundamentalist people and how they'll never see eye to eye, they'll be feuding forever."
