Review: Beautiful Stranger

The guys at 24OurMusic were kind enough to write us a review on our new song ‘Beautiful Stranger.’ Some very kind words and they gave it an overall score of 8.7!

“The first time I heard “Beautiful Stranger”, I found it difficult to put my reaction into words… but I suppose it’s a testament to a band’s abilities when your immediate reaction to hearing their song for the first time is “okay, this would probably be really cool to see performed live”. I believe the ‘steak’ comparison is a pretty good one, in that this song has a multitude of layers (or I suppose, ‘flavors’) that only surface gradually; the longer you sit with it, the better the experience is. First you’re hit with guitar – a pretty good dash of alt rock – before you’re immediately introduced to the trio’s funk rock side and a good dose of wah pedal use. The bottom ends of this trio also hold it down incredibly well. The steady groove of Fernando Tovar’s drumming coupled with Philip Van Den Brandeler’s technical finger work on the bass adds incredibly depth and balance to the track and shine brightly without overpowering or underwhelming.”

Lorde – Royals Rearrangement

Here’s a rearrangement we did of the song ‘Royals’ by Lorde. Isn’t adding extra chords to a song fun? Let’s hope that Robert Browning isn’t always right with his phrase ‘Less is More.’

2013 Breaking News

At end of last year our drummer Callum decided to leave the band and move on to other opportunities. Luckily, we’ve found a replacement: The Amazing Fernando Tovar. We’ve been getting him up to speed and writing some new tunes with him. Three of those new songs we’ll record this weekend at Atomic Studios.

We plan on releasing a lot of new music this year and making a few Voodoo Stripe arrangements of killer tracks.

From all of us at the VS HQ, we are Voodoo Stripe.

You stay classy, San Diego.
