Audio: Strange Relations – Ceremonies

strange relations_1

Minneapolis indie rockers Strange Relations is streaming “Ceremonies” off of their Going Out EP, out in July 2016 via Tiny Engines here. A full length album is due out in 2017.

With influences ranging from shoegaze to dream pop to post-punk, Strange Relations harness the cold isolation of long, harsh Minneapolis winters and create something warm and powerful. The trio, led by Casey Sowa (vocals/drums), along with her long-time partner in crime Marisa Helgeson (bass, synth), and friend Nate Hart-Andersen (guitar), expertly craft intoxicating pop songs that brim with frustration and desire. These are intimate pop songs with big ambition.
