Premiere: Stray Fossa – “Sleeper Strip”

Crafting their own take on garage-pop and indie-rock, Charlottesville, VA act Stray Fossa have a debut EP out called Sleeper Strip. Its three tracks showcase a nocturnal vein of rock with strong melodic elements, from the key-laden development of dream-pop into rock shown on closer “Bear the Waves”, to the self-titled track’s mellow guitar-driven haze, reminiscent of The War on Drugs. Heavy on atmosphere and hypnotic vocal harmonies, reminding of Spiritualized at points as well, the EP is a surefire success.

Stream the other two tracks on the EP below:

“Sleeper Strip” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2018’ Spotify playlist.
