A Family of Strangers

This is what a family of strangers looks like:

I was going to make a bad pun about them not knowing each other, but I really can't be bothered. What you do need to know is that this is the side project of Glenn from the Butterfly Effect, which means they are a local band.

Where Butterfly Effect does heavier music, A Family of Strangers seems to be a place for more melodic soft rock. When listening to their new EP New Techniques for Beginners & Champions, each track presents a slightly different style of soft rock. At times sounding like Jimmy Eat World, other times 30 Seconds to Mars and sometimes just like a soft version of the Butterfly Effect. I'll be honest, I like it better than his original band!

You can score two free MP3's off of the EP here. And you can catch them play two shows this weekend:
November 5 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers
November 6 at X&Y, which will be free entry. It's one of my favourite bars, and just won awards for the best live music venue in Australia, so get your ass there, have a drink and see some good local music!
