Opposing artistic tastes, divergent creative processes and yet a shared obsession with melody define the Virginia-based indie band, Stray Fossa. Brothers, Nick and Will Evans, and childhood friend, Zach Blount, grew up writing music together. Numerous monikers, solo efforts and a six-year hiatus later, in 2018, the three dropped everything, moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, built a studio into the attic of their house and began crafting songs together again.
Give a listen to the chill new single “Orange” from Stray Fossa (below). With psychedelic guitar and synth color the track moves on a capacious bed of upfront drums and circular bass shading. “Orange” blends surf rock sway with modern indie pop decadence, giving life to a strange and captivating hybrid of sound.
“Orange Days” took on a whole new life when film director Gary Templeton gave us permission to use his short film – “The Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle” (1982) – as the official music video for the song. “Orange Days” was written by our drummer and producer, Will Evans, and marks the second single off of our debut LP, With You For Ever. Cover art for the album was designed by Chyrum Lambert (e.g. Grizzly Bear, Ought). We’re stoked to share this one.”
