Popstrangers are an indie pop band from Auckland, New Zealand, who recently relocated to London. Their sound appropriately straddles that Kiwi sound and 80s British art-rock to give them their own unique musical foothold. During CMJ 2014, the trio dropped by Saltlands for this session to share some tunes and talk about the process of recording their latest album before rocking our very own showcase that week.
Featured song: “What’s On Your Mind”
