Strangeheart is an indie-pop band based out of Los Angeles, Ca. Singer/songwriter Jeff Thompson started the project after the break up of his former San Francisco band, Young Digerati. Thompson and bassist Brandon Queen officially formed the group in December of 2012 and quickly created a buzz while receiving plenty of recognition for the release in the U.S. of their first single, "In Another Life." Released on Soundcloud in early 2013, "In Another Life" topped the Hype Machine popular charts (no remixes) going as low as #29 and peaked on We Are Hunted's 99 Hottest Tracks at #25.
In October 2013, Strangeheart released a second U.S. single, "How to Feel Right," on iTunes. The track was written with LA producer Ran Pink at Fonogenic Studios. Due to the success of the collaboration Strangeheart decided to finish their debut album at Fonogenic Studios, co-produced by Thompson and Pink. Furthermore, the hiring of drummer James Longstreet to play on the tracks brought a cohesive sound to the band that they felt was missing. This led to Longstreet's membership in the band. After completing the record, guitarist Michael Carlito joined the band, solidifying the current lineup.
Strangeheart, who draws upon influence from modern bands such as Crystal Castles and Empire of the Sun, to 80's bands like The Cure and Pet Shop Boys, is known for their pure electro pop sound. They have signed to Paradigm for tour/booking and LA artist manager Matthew Aure for management.
