Dark-pop outfit Strangers are set to release their new EP on 18th July through Stranger Sounds. Produced by stalwart remixer/producer and Strangers band member Glen Nicholls (Depeche Mode, UNKLE, Everything Everything) EP2 features three haunting tracks echoes the ethereal synth sounds of the 1980s, with pounding rhythms and soaring soundscapes.
Formed in 2010, Strangers is the brainchild of David Maddox-Jones, formerly of The Departure. In March 2011, the band unleashed their first recorded offering, EP1, into the digital world. Virally propelled by the dark and enigmatic video for lead track In Chaos coupled with an ambient remix by Paper Crows, the free-to-download EP received a hugely positive reaction from a spread of tastemaker music sites and blogs, with the lead track itself receiving several plays on national radio stations.
In addition to the digital release of EP2, Strangers will release a limited edition 7inch single on 4th July, through Killing Moon Records, featuring the lead tracks from EP1 and EP2, ‘It Was a Sin’ and ‘If I Found Love’.
A remix of ‘It Was a Sin’ from Forgold (Foe, The Milk, Pete Lawrie) is available to download from the Killing Moon website: www.killingmoonlimited.com/mpfrees.
The band will perform tracks from both EP’s on 13th July at The Wheelbarrow, Camden.
