Artist Spotlight : Maudlin Strangers

Maudlin-Strangers-Electric-Bare

Another gem had emerged this week, and it just so happens it’s from the area I went to high school in so many lifetimes ago. Maudlin Strangers is a dark indie rock project from Agoura Hills, California, and although live performances by the band are executed by 3 additional members (Kenny Benson, Jeff Lehrer, and Mac Sinise), the project itself is the result of the multifaceted musician Jake Hays.

Hays not only plays each instrument on every track, but he also supplies the vocals. The result is a smooth blend of edgy simplicity and a dance between acoustic and electronic elements. Every musical element compliments the other extremely well, which results in beautiful build ups, intricate melodies, and overall a distinct sound. Although they only have two original tracks published thus far, we can definitely expect some interesting new music from a band that could very well be the next Black Keys.
