Frenchkiss Records – the indie known for fostering contemporary delights like Diet Cig and Local Natives – has a new favorite to share. The label’s latest sensation – Strange Names – releases “Into Me” today. This NYC treasure of a trio delivers deliciously danceable New Wave pop, telling imaginative tales atop wiry melodies and pulsating synths. It’s a gift for lovers of anything between The B-52’s and Phoenix. Strange Names will celebrate the single release at Union Pool in NYC this Friday, November 10.
From Minneapolis to Manhattan, Liam Benzvi, Francis Ximenez, and Fletcher Aleckson have ignited tastemaking music communities. In 2015, the group released debut album Use Your Time Wisely to critical delight and toured alongside Azealia Banks. Strange Names’ sophomore effort is expected in early 2018.
