Dark indie rockers, Maudlin Strangers have recently signed to Vagrant Records. Formed in 2010, Maudlin Strangers is the project of Agoura Hills, CA native, Jake Hays. They recorded their debut EP, Overdose in Hays’ bedroom and released it just last month. To say that it is uh-mazing is an understatement. Where did these guys come from? Vocals are killer and their overall sound just sets up this chill, but poignant tone.
Definitely have a listen to the EP on Soundcloud. If your ears are dancing, you can catch them live while they are rounding up their tour with Bad Suns. Dates below.
