ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Blow Up 45 Series New Wave – No. 2: This UK debut for new Wave Swedish rockers STRIP MUSIC won over UK fans before its release, when Radio 1 listeners voted it the best track on Zane Lowe’s ‘Fresh Meat’ record spin-off on Monday 25th April, earning the record more plays on the rock show.
Signed to buzz independent label, Playground Music in Sweden, Strip Music are a six-piece whose music was described by Vice Magazine in Sweden as ‘Joy Division meets early Manics’. More specifically, their debut album, gives us 45 epic minutes of Joy Division bleakness meets OMD pop joy meets U2 arena dynamics meets Suicide’s synth attack meets the shadowy, trance-like qualities of The Cure.
