Strange Currencies EP : Strange Currencies

 Unwrap Strange Currencies…The sonorous superb vocals of PP Johnson. With an eclectic acoustic foundation, this is rock music for the soul. The multi instrumentation of Claudine West emits rhythmical eloquence with alternative undertones. Lyrical diversity walks between parallel lines of the hauntingly uplifting. With gems such as ‘The Last Refuge.’ This creative duo radiate powerful live performances, which are stripped down to the bone, invoking a zephyr that turns a hurricane.

Released 10.09.16

strangecu press release 2016

Described as ‘SUBLIME’ by Filthy’s, Nottingham.

Formed in April 2016, Nottingham duo Strange Currencies began writing and recording their eponymous debut EP and their 2017 debut album ‘Making Monsters.’

Featuring the powerful raw vocals of PP Johnson (No Empire, Subway Circus) and multi-instrumentalist Claudine West (The Idolins, Subway Circus)

They began performing at local open mic nights to promote their music and have thus far worked with local promoters such as ‘Bad Time For Bonzo’ and ‘I’m Not From London.’

They describe their eureka moment as an eclectic style they call ROCKUSTIC: fusing such styles as Rock, Country and Folk (to name but a few). Influenced by The Who, The Doors, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Bobby Womack, Foo Fighters, Tori Amos, Black Sabbath, Jose Gonzalez and Suzanne Vega and R.E.M. (with the band name taken from the R.E.M. song).

 

Strange Currencies EP Track Listing

  1. I Don’t Dance

A catchy acoustic funky track about today’s drinking culture. Intoxication being the only way to willingly get on the dance floor (for people of a certain age). Featuring guest harmonica by Robert ‘Too Tall’ Batchelor, whom the pair met on a live mic night at The Doghouse in Carlton, Nottingham.

  1. The Last Refuge

They say prayer is the last refuge of the scoundrel. This haunting acoustic track tells of a drug addict who, while overdosing, turns to god in their final moments.

 

  1. Razor Face

The mandolin accompanies this tale of the end of a long and failing relationship.

“ ‘Cause you and I are lost to the circus

You’re chasing pictures of bumper cars

And I know it’s your space not mine

I’m just making up the numbers

And if you think I’m out of line

Then I’m happy to let you”
