With a nod to classic influences such as Blondie, The Strokes and The Smiths, Stranger Girl combine their firm indie-rock roots with a 21st-century twist of polished soundscapes and explosive pop melodies. Lead singer Melissa’s emotively raw lyrical style and dynamic shifts in storytelling has become something that frequently resonates with their rapidly expanding fanbase.
Whilst still in the early days of their musical journey, Stranger Girl have already been catching ears and turning heads across the industry, garnering placement on the coveted Spotify’s ‘Hot New Bands’ playlist as well as the accolade of ‘Track of the Day’ on BBC Introducing South.
Find the Humour is the perfect soundtrack for the transition into Autumn, introduced by summery guitars, Melissa’s honeyed harmonies paint a relatably melancholic and personal tale. Building on the adolescent angst commonly found in indierock, they bring the narrative forward, outlining that “Find the Humour is about processing a break-up. It explores the themes of love and separation and learning how to navigate relationships in your twenties.”
