Imagined as Duran Duran caught in a rundown, Vancouver, BC’s Sex With Strangers are sonic equivalent of a Swiss army knife, drawing on a wide variety of influences ranging from new wave, to post-punk, to dance rock. Although the band revels in the exploration of a wide variety of genres, SWS has managed to create their own unique sound, highlighted by robust bass grooves and the vocal interplay between lead singers Hatch Benedict and Shevaughn Ruley.

Once named as one of “7 Undiscovered Bands Worth a Listen” to by SPIN Magazine, Sex With Strangers is best known for their feverish and interactive live performances. The band has showcased at a number of North American festivals since their inception, including performances at SXSW, CMJ, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Rifflandia, Sled Island, Junofest and Shambhala.

Following the release of a new EP “Space In Time” in April 2016, Sex With Strangers will be delivering their sixth studio album “Discourse” on October 18th, 2016.
