The music of Casual Strangers can be a bit surreal as waves of synth and guitar wash over you to create an intense mesmerizing, kaleidoscope of sound. Hailing from Austin, the psychedelic band has ditched the vocals and have gone solely instrumental with a clear focus on creating tripped out tracks with two synths, lap steel guitar, and heavy percussion. Their avant-garde music is a triumph of all things psychedelic, that is envelopes listeners, sounding similar to the Flaming Lips.
Casual Strangers stopped by Studio 1A and showcased some of their music from their new album, Pink Panther, which is set to release on February 26th with a show at Sidewinder so make sure to get tickets while you can! You can also stream their music here on KUTX.
