Strangled Darlings at Burro Bar on Dec 20th – Album Release Tour

Strangled Darlings brings a punk intensity to their live show. Taking a cello and making it a hip hop bass. Taking mandolin and slapping it like a stubborn mule. The Portland based duo has been creating original tunes since 2009 and breaking the mold for what hipsters consider indie music. The bring a lyrical intelligence and political punch to their songs. Their song material varies widely to cover a blend of folk, hip hop, jazz and Americana with inspiration coming from: witchcraft in the Civil War, the morality of Somali piracy and the media impact of NeilArmstrong. The band has released three studio albums and a fourth is due out this winter. Their live show mixes technical mastery with deadpan humor and a little something to shake your rumpus.
