Goodbye Stranger are an up-and-coming synthpop band from London.
Their dreamy, ambient music will have you immersed in an instant, such as in their debut single “Cave” (released in December last year). It’s a hypnotic, trancelike piece. They quote their influences as New Order and RUFUS, and it’s not hard to hear the inspiration shining through.
More recently, they’ve released “Why Reduce Yourself”. It’s just as spellbinding as the first, with its soulful singing and soft guitar tones making it truly special. Goodbye Stranger are, in their own words, “here to make you dance and swoon”, and this track effortlessly manages both. But don’t take our word for it – give it a listen!
Though the band is still young, they’ve already played the Monkey Week Festival in Spain, as well as venues such as The 100 Club, The Borderline, The Camden Barfly, the O2 Academy Islington and The Old Queens Head. As well as this, they’ve been featured on BBC London’s BBC Introducing programme and have received a positive reception from blogs and online radio. So stay tuned: Goodbye Stranger are ones to watch!
