How Strange It Is
How Strange It Is organizes collaborative chaos into tight, structured songs indebted to 90s indie rock along with post-punk and contemporary slowcore. Their most recent release, In the Light of the Blistering Moon (Bud Tapes/Candlepin Records 2023), displays songwriter Jordan Krinsky's deepening musical relationship with his bandmates and the thrilling results of their sonic explorations. Backed by Annie Miranda (Soft Cheese) on bass, Annie Fifer (Yellow Room, Babytooth) on guitar, Kyle Gordon on drums, and a rotating cast of others when they’re available filling in the gaps, Krinsky’s introspective writing intersects with improvisations and experiments, catapulting tender synth drones into rich layered guitar arrangements. They live in Portland, Oregon where they formed in the spring of 2021.
