Composed of brothers, Nick and Will Evans, and Zach Blount, Stray Fossa is an indie pop band from Charlottesville, VA.
Their creative process is defined by compromise in the face of opposing artistic tastes as well as a shared desire (obsession) to make more sound than one would expect from a three-piece. “Heavy on atmosphere and hypnotic vocal harmonies” (Obscure Sound) the band pools ambient bass and guitar layering with shimmering vocal washes to craft songs that hover somewhere between modern garage and indie pop with a varnish of nostalgia for what hit the airwaves in the 60s and 70s. The Evans brothers’ lyrics float on top—at times an intimate narrative and other times mixing pointed observation with subtle and unassuming commentary on human behavior and complacency.
Stray Fossa's debut EP, "Sleeper Strip" (2018), garnered praise from notable blogs and magazines, such as The Wild Honey Pie, Obscure Sound, Whurk Magazine, Look Up Records. Compared to the likes of Beach House, Real Estate and The War on Drugs, the three-track release has been described as a “nocturnal vein of rock with strong melodic elements” – a “heart-rending blend of garage rock and dream pop” with “consistently superb vocal deliveries throughout” (Look Up Records). Outlets were quick to applaud the songwriting, home recording and self-sufficiency in music production.
