Stray Fossa can be defined by a shared desire to make more sound than one would expect from a three-piece. “Heavy on atmosphere and hypnotic vocal harmonies” the band carefully pools ambient bass and guitar layered with shimmering vocals on songs that hover somewhere between modern garage and indie pop with a varnish of the nostalgia felt in 80’s new wave and rock.
Having cut their teeth experimenting with elements of classic British pop they have also developed an ear for the lyrical storytelling traditional to the Appalachian music-scape in which they grew up. After many stops and starts in their earlier musical endeavors, 2018’s Sleeper Strip marked the band's first EP release as Stray Fossa.
Sleeper Strip garnered praise from notable music blogs and magazines, such as The Wild Honey Pie, Obscure Sound, Whurk Magazine, Look Up Records and others. 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”.
In 2021, the band released their debut full-length With You For Ever.
