Biography

Popstrangers is Joel Flyger, Adam Page and David Larson; three native New Zealanders who make “pop” music that is hard-driving, punk-influenced, and sonically inimitable.

The band formed in 2009, after the three members connected over their shared histories of bad day jobs, stints in other bands, and most importantly, their desire to create music with like-minded people. With ... Read more in Amazon's Popstrangers Store

Editorial Reviews

Fortuna, the second full length from New Zealand trio Popstrangers, trades the grunge revivalism of the band's previous releases for buoyant hooks and '60s pop. Eschewing the squalling guitars that propelled their debut album Antipodes for clear-headed production and lush choruses, Popstrangers hit their stride on Fortuna, crystallizing their influences into a succinct record of indie psych that never lingers too long.

Format:Audio CD
2nd album of New Zealand psychedelic power pop that incorporates a wealth of addictive,
angsty hooks. The songs are creative and as unpredictable as adherence to the genre allows.
Melodies exist in a beautifully twisted, angular sound space that makes melancholy sparkle with
crystal guitar notes and ringing, subtly edgy pop tunes. Shades of XTC, Elf Power, Soft Boys/
Robyn Hitchcock, Mmoss, Stratford 4, the Chills, Crocodiles, Pinback, the Vaccines. “Fortuna” is
a fresh & brilliant glimmer of indie psych/pop.

First four tracks are bulletproof. Especially "Don't Be Afraid" and "Country Kills". Very solid, lightly psychedelic sound throughout, with the production being a tad muddy - works in the band's favor though. I really enjoy this album and am excited to hear what else these guys come up with.
