Strange Men
-from San Francisco, CA
-Róisín was seventeen when she found a burned CD on the ceiling at a punk show. A year later she met male-bassist and fellow teenager Ashley at a birthday party. It would be a few more years before they put together that the demo she'd once found on a club ceiling was his. Now they're Strange Men — Róisín plays drums, Ashley plays an 8-string guitar/bass he made out of scavenged wood, and they both sing.

Their debut self-titled release, recorded in the basement of the same friend who’d introduced them at a birthday party more than a decade before, presents three distinct moods of indie punk cohered by Strange Men’s unique instrumentation and counterpointing masculine/feminine vocals.

“This is Certain” opens the trio of songs, an alternately anguished and optimistic reflection on Ashley’s early-twenties struggle to dedicate himself to creative community against the increasingly hostile environment of San Francisco in the 2010s. The second track, “Ungrateful Town” tells an ill-fated love story set on the battleground of local politics. These frustrations with late stage capitalism explode in “Hot Nights,” an apocalyptic vision of partying through climate catastrophe.
