Intimate Stranger was our first international band to come to Ardent Studios to record an episode of The Warm Up. We were thrilled to invite them to come spend the afternoon with us and record some tunes.
We were really excited to have Intimate Stranger visit us to chat about their multicultural background and some of their earliest influences. They are super laid back and we think they had a great time hanging out in the studio for the afternoon. We hope they come back to visit again soon! The band is in Memphis to play a show at The Young Avenue Deli tonight!
Check out our podcast to hear some outstanding live tunes! Feel free to download The Warm Up at Ardent Studios with Intimate Stranger podcast! It’s a free Memphis music download from us to you!
After four years touring Latin America, the UK, Europe and the USA, Anglo-Chilean avant-pop phenomenon, Intimate Stranger – formed in 2006 by Chilean guitarist Lautaro Vera and English/Croatian singer/bassist Tessie Stranger, has finally had the breakthrough they deserve with the release of their second album Under in June 2010. As of November 2010 the band is based in Austin, Texas, playing with drummer Victor Ziolkowski and keyboardist Ismael Palma, and is currently undergoing their second US tour Moments of Riot 2011.
The title song Under is getting extensive mainstream and collage radio play, (including Austin’s 101 X, BBC Radio 6, and top South American stations Horizonte and Rock and Pop), and its video is currently on MTV in Latin America. The press reviews for the album and in particular the second single Moments are sensational. The album was voted amongst the top national albums of 2010 by 6 of Chile’s major music critics, and its sound was recently described on Tom Robinson‘s Introducing BBC 6 Radio as being “gritty and dirty and calm and etheral at the same time, with beautiful vocals – a difficult balancing act”.
