Casual Strangers is a new Austin based, four-piece art rock band. Their sound is a smooth combination of ‘American guitar rock of the 90’s, British dream rock of the 80’s, and acid-tinged Krautock of the 70’s.’ The sound encompasses the ‘Slacker’ attitude of Austin. Their music is meant to free your mind, their influences include The Velvet Underground and Nico, Pixies Jefferson Airplane, and Jimi Hendrix. These bright up and comers are a must see. You can check them out at their album release party with The Sour Notes at the Mohawk July 18th, and you can listen to them play live here in Studio 1A.
