Strange Acres is Molly Grace, formerly of Sleeping Kings Of Iona and Jason Mazzariello, formerly of Vera Lena having blended their musical interests of electronic, acoustic, and atmospheric soundscapes into a delicate and haunting cinematic symphony of dark pop and mood. A rare dance on the brink of our muddled perception of morality lured back from the ledge only to sunder over misguided moments of adoration. Alongside fellow collaborators and current members of The Orphans, Ryan Besch and Mike Sobieraj; Strange Acres have carved out a soundtrack that feels trapped somewhere between the dust of an abandon border town and the bedroom of your lover.
The project began as a collaboration between Molly & Jason looking to create pure electronic music in the vein of trip-hop influences like Portishead to more modern upbeat synth pop such as M83 and Phantogram. A year later and with an entire record of material ready to record Molly & Jay sat down to session with an acoustic guitar and felt something special. A more stripped down version of themselves that crossed somewhere between the lines of Mazzy Star, Cat Power, and Karen O's slower moments. At that point they made a mutual decision with fellow collaborator Ryan Besch to shelf the entire first batch of songs and begin again at a more organic point. The entire record of new material was developed over the course of the next 6 months with just Molly's vocals and a single acoustic guitar. What proceeded this process was Jason then infusing electronics over the bare bones tracks until we felt what we created was a perfect marriage of traditional song structure and electronic flesh. In the end, the Strange Acres record became more of what we desired as artists. Songs that could stand on their own without synthesis but with a soundtrack like element of electronics that fused all of our influences into once single body of work.
