Song of the Week: The Local Strangers

Hand claps. Tambourine. 
Do you really need any more introduction to a great new song?

Today, The Local Strangers, from Seattle Washington, are releasing the first single, “Mr. Blackberry”, from their  forthcoming first full length album, Left For Better.
You can and should download and stream this song for free on the band’s bandcamp site.

Known for their powerhouse vocals (I mean, did you hear Aubrey Zoli’s voice? Mercy.) that can front both folksy melodies and rock and rolling anthems, The Local Strangers  are finally receiving the nationwide attention that their talent and charm so deserve.

Left For Better will be digitally released on November 5 (more info here), followed by a tour that includes the East Coast and little old Washington DC!  I will be (hopefully) eating copious amount of gelato in Italy, when the Local Strangers play a House Concert here in the Capitol City on November 18, but all in town should go, East Coast represent!  I first fell in love with live music from roaming to and fro house shows during college, and still believe that nothing really beats the intimacy of smaller shows.  More details on the tour can be found on their Facebook page.
