Under

by Intimate stranger

This is the second full-length release from Chile's Intimate Stranger. Under is an instantly likable collection of danceable modern pop/rock tunes with a difference. This band's overall sound is something like Bjork mixed with The Pretenders with a light touch of Martha and the Muffins added for good measure (?!). The melodies are contagious...and vocalist Tessie Spoljaric-Woodgate has an incredible voice that just oozes with genuine sincerity.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Under is an instantly likable collection of danceable modern pop/rock tunes with a difference. This band's overall sound is something like Bjork mixed with The Pretenders with a light touch of Martha and the Muffins added for good measure (?!). The melodies are contagious...and vocalist Tessie Spoljaric-Woodgate has an incredible voice that just oozes with genuine sincerity. The more we spin this album the better these songs sound. Cool credible modern pop tracks include "Moments," "Nighttime," "Held,""Shiny Tears," and "Gone and Buried." Top pick." www.babysue.com

Intimate Stranger logra toda la atención en los primeros segundos de Under, su segundo álbum. Las naturales y apasionantes entonaciones de su inglesa-croata Tessie, a cargo del bajo y la voz, nos llevan a un viaje por delicados, aunque -a la vez- energéticos sonidos indie rock, que bien podrían sonar noventeros, pero los riff con tintes garage de Lautaro Vera nos regresan a nuestros días. El disco se desarrolla en 10 historias de extraños amores. El grupo tiene claro su horizonte: sonar profesionales, ya sea en estudio como en vivo. Así lo dejaron en claro con su gira promocional recientemente en el sur de Estados Unidos, en el South by Southwest Festival. En esta nueva placa brillan la entusiasta ‘Note To Self’, la implacable ‘Beastie Queen’ y la ecléctica ‘All Things Pretty’. Intensamente elegantes. Do You Understand Me?

"With front lady Woodgate singing and on bass, Lautaro Vera on guitar, Mauricio Muñoz rocking the drums and Ismael Palma pouring over the keyboard, Intimate Stranger is a complete and talented team ready to intoxicate any listener." - Derek Lactaoen, Revolver Magazine

“The title “Under” reflects an ongoing journey – through the paradoxes - towards self-realization and understanding, from ruin to euphoria and all the chaos that lies between. The single Under, released in the USA in December 2009 has already become a favorite of the student airways.
It tells of states of subjection and feelings of being subordinate to something outside oneself. A sense of not being in control of our existence and our experiences (i.e. ‘under the influence’) whether manifest through pleasure, or painful emotions and self-destructive tendencies. (Note to Self, Moments) Another element is going back and forth through states of unconsciousness and emptiness and a sense of being unable to reach an unattainable place and understanding of our identity (Held, Nighttime, Little Steps, Under) Through confusion and a feeling of dual existence, to short bouts of empowerment and desires for beauty and perfection (All things Pretty, Beastie Queen, Shiny Tears, Gone and Buried).” - Tessie Spoljaric-Woodgate, Intimate Stranger
