Feathersongs For Factory Girls Part II is the debut EP out today from dreamy electro pop artist Stripmall Architecture, and quite feathery they are. Vibrant in the San Francisco music scene, this duo combines trippy electro-twangs, drip-dropping beats and wispy female vocals, and they've gathered quite the loyal following. If you like Lykke Li, The Knife or Bat for Lashes, you will probably dig their sound.
Listen to the 5-song EP for free online from their website, and find out more information about their live shows. It looks like they have two shows coming up in the Bay area.
San Francisco Weekly said of them, “Does the mention of a band somewhere in-between Sigur Ros and the Cocteau Twins make those little hairs on the back of your neck tingle? If so, you owe it to yourself to check for Stripmall Architecture’s show."
We also like this description from Seattle's The Stranger: "Rebecca Coseboom's voice flutters around your head like a silky scarf and the whole is like a sonic manifestation of a romantic swoon…"
Kind of other-worldly, kind of skin-tingly, here is a video they made for a song not on the EP:
free download of a new song a lot of us here can relate to, called "We Are Not Cool."
