As if there isn’t enough incredible musicianship emerging from Portland, our city is now kidnapping foreign talent as well. Strangers Die Every Day recently relocated here from Colorado, and these kids can play! Their music is rich with haunting cellos and violins, their sound is a mesh between classical and goth along the lines of Black Heart Procession and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The thing that is most amazing about the band’s live performance is how young its members appear to be, and how effortlessly they play.
