The Strange Boys(external resources)
The Strange Boys are a phenomenal young group from Austin, Texas.
They are at the same time, both timeless and refreshingly avant garde. Set to appeal to anyone who has a liking for top quality beat and blues influenced rock n’ roll, The Strange Boys have provoked excitement and reaction in the Rough Trade offices the like of which has been unseen since the signing of The Strokes. They played their first European shows this summer to wild reaction and their live return to the UK is hotly anticipated. Having played across Europe this summer, they’ve since returned to the US and recorded their 2nd album in Costa Mesa. Entitled, ‘Be Brave’, it is the follow up to their debut ‘And Girls Club’, which was released on In The Red in the US and became a hugely popular underground record in the UK via import copies alone.
