Kloudink puts an extra bounce in your step as you listen to “Round and Round”

We find music from all over the world because the way we see it, why be confined within the areas of where you live. Yes, we live in Los Angeles, where there is a lot of music to be listened to and live acts to see, but we have aspirations of finding music from all over. We want all of our Strange followers to know and listen to different music from different parts of the world with different stories to share. Our feature today is an Alternative band from South Africa, George to be exact. We bring you Kloudink and their first single, “Round and Round”.

You can tell how fun and charismatic this band is from their very first music video for “Round and Round”. Their energy is definitely contagious because it makes you want to go out there and seize the day, let the sun tell you how much time you have to enjoy the world outside. The guitar uses higher pitched chords to strike each string to melodic perfection. You can listen in when they go into higher and higher frets to keep the sound bubbly and fun. The drums keep the rhythm upbeat with a high tempo to insinuate an extra bounce to your step. Wait, let’s get back to the guitar, it’s just too enchanting as you listen to the bridge, and it isn’t something too difficult but it works so well. It’s the same 3 notes played over each other in higher and lower frets but they were able to make it to a complete new sound. Tell us what you think below!


The Night Cafe release new Alternative track, “Felicity”

Just by listening to “Felicity” by The Night Cafe, we were able to automatically guess what type of band this is and the type of music they release. They hold a strong resemblance to Cage The Elephant and “Felicity” is just the track to show you one side of the band that closely follows in their footsteps. From the start of the initial guitar riff to the initial guitar chord from the rhythm guitar to signify its sound. They have a major influential sound of The Cure from the 80s and Cage The Elephant. The vocals hold tightly to the range the singer is comfortable and he doesn’t stray away too far from what he knows. Make no mistake, we are excited to listen to what they can come with in the future but for now, “Felicity” sounds all too familiar. We may be wrong, so please take a listen and give us your thoughts on the track.

Good things come in 3’s when you listen to Good Kid’s “Witches”

There are 3 things that make this world go ’round: Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galacctica. Whoops, never mind that. We thought it was Dwight Schrute’s world and we were just living in it. Well, here’s another set of 3 things that make the world go ’round for the band being featured tonight: Music, computers, and video games. Good Kid is a band made of friends who like three of the those same things. The latter you can say would be the constant inspiration for all the writing and jam sessions they have. This is how they were able to show us “Witches“, their new track release that’s truly an alternative sound.

Don’t be “Shy”, listen to Hunny

When you add a little honey to something, boy does it sweeten it just the way you like it. Shoot, We wouldn’t be able to drink tea if we didn’t have any honey. We wouldn’t be able to say “Honey, I’m home” when we get home to our wives…who are we kidding, we’re not married! Rick Moranis would only say “I shrunk the kids” instead of his famous “Honey, I shrunk the kids”. Here we go again going off on a tangent instead of telling you what this damn post is all about. We want to introduce you to Hunny‘s new song “Shy“.  Continue reading “Don’t be “Shy”, listen to Hunny”

8 graves

8 is such an interesting number. It’s the only number that, when written, the pencil never comes to a complete stop. Writing the number 8 can go one forever as you keep going and going over the same number. Wait, is that why it’s just an upright infinity symbol? Mind blown. Yes, that was very off topic but that’s how we decided to introduce 8 Graves and their recent release, “Silly of Me“.  Continue reading “8 Graves bring you their new release, “Silly of Me””
