Since I already knew what it was about, I instantly started looking for HOMOPHONES as the Spangram and yep, there it was. Once I had confirmed that, it became way easier to solve. I found MEET and PAIR in the top left. The bottom right housed STAKE and above it, I found CHILLY.

In the bottom left, there was TIME and MOOSE. The last couple of grids on the left gave me KALE. After a bit more looking, I found SERIAL in the top right as well. And, that concluded my Strands for the day. Super fast, and didn’t have to use any hints.
