From drunken noise to quiet grace, Strangers rise and fall like few others. The young four-piece have a uniquely dramatic sound and confronting live show that has won them an audience of dedicated fans. Delicate drums dance with rotten guitars, all beneath a frantic poetry that can make you as uncomfortable as you are excited.


After independently releasing their SOLD OUT debut EP through MGM distribution in late 2013, Melbourne's quartet Strangers From Now On have been gathering critical acclaim and a solid fan base in their hometown, thanks to a confronting and consistently epic live set.

Their songs evoke haunting and beautiful imagery, snap changes move from soft breathes to explosive force as the band effortlessly demonstrate raw emotion as sound.

STRANGERS FROM NOW ON began as a collaboration between vocalist Gabriel Santos’ lyrically focused theatrical songwriting style and Aidan Kelly’s guitar sound; a combination of atmospheric swirling and screaming noise and lead lines that roll with a kind of drunken precision. After several shows the pair recruited drummer Miranda Holt, who’s expressive, tom driven style paired with wollooping, stomping bass guitar lines of Dan Myles, gives grounding to the band. 

In early 2013 Strangers were invited to play alongside revered national/international acts such as My Bloody Valentine and The Drones at boutique music festival ‘All Tomorrow’s parties'.

Their much anticipated release of their 2014 EP "COLOGNE" is due for an August launch in Melbourne. Working along side Lindsay Gravena of BirdLand studios, the single DAVIDOFF has already proved to be a tantalising taste of their new recordings. 

“…creating a sound that would make Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds turn green with envy…Strangers managed prove once again why they are one of Melbourne’s finest up and coming bands.” Adam Not Eve
