THE ESTRANGED (USA)

W/Kromosom, RIP Fucker, Extinct Exist & Soma Coma

Post Punk
The Estranged// Infinite Void east coast tour FEB A little research finds The Estranged’s sound is often compared to that of The Cure and/or Echo & The Bunnymen. While this is perchance a bit lazy, it is not at all inaccurate. That is to say, in addition to the previously mentioned post-punk and death-rock, they do incorporate vibrant rudiments that recall the gothic romanticism of early ‘80s British college rock.
