Strange Ranger (fka Sioux Falls) is an Indie-Rock/Post-Punk band from Montana, now based out of Portland, Oregon. The band was formed by the duo of Isaac Eiger and Fred Nixon, who have been playing music together since 2009 when the pair were still in high school. A friendship solidified by their mutual love of early Modest Mouse, the two would eventually make the move to Portland in search of more fertile musical soil. The band would struggle to solidify over the next few years but those hardships would lead to their breakthrough debut full-length, the sprawling Rot Forever under the name Sioux Falls, released in February of 2016. From there it has been a whirlwind of notoriety for the band. Rot Forever was named one of Consequence of Sound's 'Top 50 Albums of 2016.' Later in 2016 the band would change their name to Strange Ranger and release a new EP, Sunbeams Through Your Head, which would make Stereogum's list of "Great EPs from 2016." Those two releases would also lead Stereogum to name Strange Ranger one of "2016's Best New Bands."
This Phoenix, Arizona post-rock quartet keep listeners on their toes as they mix dreamy atmospheric sounds with subtle fuzzy noise. Rich, resonant bass and delicate, driving percussion prevent songs from droning off into oblivion; courtesy of bassist Jordan Owen and drummer Chris Gerber. Dual guitarist/vocalists Sophie Opich and Colson Miller trade off as they deliver droney distorted guitars and vocals calm, cool, and collected enough to come off as almost apathetic if it weren’t for the stirring feeling of earnestness that lay just below the surface. Some moments feel fraught, almost like a dull anxiety-- found on “Affection” and “Something to You”, which both convey a profound sense of yearning for more. Emotional odes to the past “Erase Time” and “Think of Me None” showcase a distinct tenderness.
