If you have yet to check out the Strange Boys, you best get on it. These guys are pretty rockin’ and are sittin’ pretty on my hot list. We recently caught them at FYF Fest where they brought out members of Mika Miko (Jenna) and Darker My Love out for a killer set.
Set to appeal to anyone who has a liking for top quality beat and blues influenced rock n’ roll, The Strange Boys have provoked excitement and reaction in the Rough Trade offices the like of which has been unseen since the signing of The Strokes. With such a huge following int he UK and Europe, the boys have signed to Rough Trade Records for the world excluding the U.S. (where they remain on In The Red Records).
Since wowing the masses abroad, they’ve now cut their sophmore album in Costa Mesa, Calif. entitled, “Be Brave.”Stream their hot new track “Be Brave” here.
