Intimate Stranger (Chile)
28 July 2018 @ 9:00 PM - 1:00 AM
Intimate Stranger will present singles from their 5 studio albums on Saturday 28th July at VONDELBUNKER in AMSTERDAM at 9:00pm, as part of their 2018 European Tour.
Intimate Stranger’s dreamy sound is characterized by its vocal melodies and shimmery guitars. Described on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 radio program as “gritty, dirty, calm and ethereal at the same time, with beautiful vocals – a balanced sound that is difficult to achieve”.
Their post-punk influences of the likes of The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees merge with a dream pop sound characteristic of bands like the Cocteau Twins and Slowdive, as well as nod to mid-2000’s indie rock bands popular around the time Intimate Stranger was formed in 2007 by guitarist Lautaro Vera and singer Tessie Woodgate.
Based in Chile, they have spent considerable time abroad, including tours in Europe, South America and the USA. Their single “Under” was in the top 10 of US independent radio stations and Spin magazine voted them in their top new bands to watch live in 2011.
The band has played important festivals, including Lollapalooza and Primavera Fauna and have supported various international acts including: Ed Sheeran, Raveonettes, Interpol, The Walkmen, Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order) and A Place to Bury Strangers.
