Intimate Stranger


Intimate Stranger is an indie-rock band consisting of Tessie Stranger (vocals/guitar) Lau Stranger (guitar/keyboards) Andres Ugarte (Drums) and Filip Crisis (bass). Influenced by elements of post-punk and dream pop, their sound is characterized by its vocal melodies and atmospheric guitars, mixed with drumbeats and synths. Described by Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 radio program as “gritty, dirty, calm and ethereal at the same time, with beautiful vocals”.

The Anglo-Chilean band was formed in 2007 by Chilean guitarist Lau Stranger and English/Croatian singer Tessie Stranger, initially commuting between Chile and London.
