Intimate stranger 'Under' video directed by Lucas Tripodi

It has been few months now since we started working with Lucas Tripodi on 2 videos for Intimate Stranger. Under is the first one to be released. Lucas' idea was to mix two photo techniques together, 'stop motion' and 'light painting' to create the effect in the video. It took quite a few sessions to get all the photos we wanted - the shoots consistied of waiting in the dark for a minute while our helpers moved diferent children's toys with flashing coloured lights all over the room. It was a bit strange standing in the middle of people running around with a mixture of 'twinkle twinkle little star', animal noises and beeps going off around you. It was an exciting experience making it and seeing the end result. Gracias Lucas!

Estimados camaradas

Se acabo el receso! y pensando en ustedes que nos llenaron de apoyo y energía el primer semestre, volvemos totalmente renovados para comenzar una nueva temporada en un lugar mucho más cómodo, con mejores instalaciones y las mejores bandas del circuito independiente en vivo.

En esta primera sesión tendremos de invitados a Intimate Stranger, que luego de desarrollarse en Londres y dar vueltas por algunos festivales de Estados Unidos, llego a Chile para sorprendernos con su dulce y oscuro Indie rock de alta factura.

Y para encender la pista, nuestro amigo Nico castro (Extravaganza / radio Horizonte) abrirá la noche con una fina selección de nuevos sonidos que nos dejaran a todos completamente de cabeza. Para dar paso a la distorsión de los clásicos del post punk, el brit y el garage más sudoroso a cargo de nuestro nuevo residente Bruno Battaglia, recién llegado de los okupas europeos. Astudillo por su parte, creador y anfitrión permanente de Riot Club, cerrara la noche con un desenfrenado set de guitarras, remixes y ruido.

Todo esto acompañado de las bellas visuales de desayunada que nos dejaran completamente desorbitados.


Line up_ Lleguen temprano!

11:30 Riot club selecta
00:30 Intimate Stranger

RECORDING








As mentioned in a previous blog - we are currently recording our second album. Its all going super duper well!

After a year writing and recording demos in our home studio, we spent last week in Pablito's studio (The Ganjas, Casino) to record the second album. Its a real dynamic mix of tracks and the themes are pretty heavy and melancholic. Its been a few years since the first album and since then we have evolved a unique sound, as well as incorporated organs and synths.

ROLLING STONE JAN 2009




I was in an a Rolling Stone Chile special about 'Mujeres del Rock Chileno 2009' in January - this is the foto they took and published with the interview (which was good up until the end when they made up a response...  which was out of order! They basically wrote that i said I didn't like Santiago or living here, quoting me saying something Lautaro said...To clear that up: I really like living in Santiago...so there!)

About me en Castellano

Intimate Stranger, grupo formado el 2005 en Santiago de Chile por Lauatro, ex-guitarrista de los conjuntos rock Cucsifae, Donfango y Disturbio Menor y por la cantante y bajista Tessie Spoljaric-Woodgate.

A fines del 2005 se radican en Londres donde se unen con Ric Jonston, baterista de la banda The Black Dove Experiment. Rapidamente desarollan un sonido propio que es reflejado en su primer disco 'Life Jacket'. 

El trio crea melodias pop que ne conjunto con su simple instrumentacion y una voz feminina completan un estilo que les da una caracteristica unica dentro del rock alternativo. En sus letras mezclan exitosamente el sentido de fantasia y la crudeza de la vida urbana. 

Intimate Stranger actuo en eventos de la escena londienense y realizo giras en el continente europeo y en USA. Toco en festivales de musica como los de SXSW 2008 en Austin, Texas.

Ahora la banda esta de vuelta en Chile para grabar su segundo disco junto al baterista original,  Mauricio Muñoz, quien recientemente vuelve a formar parte de la banda.
