Brooklyn-based occult-electronic band A PLACE BOTH WONDERFUL AND STRANGE release the video for their hypnotic and intoxicating track, “Kristae” from the new ep, The City Smells Like Cat Spit.
“The track thick electronic atmosphere, motorik, minimal percussion, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Laura Hajek’s treated bass, and Russ Marshalek’s downpitched vocals, all of which evoke the unsettling-yet-satisfying mood of early Fever Ray and naturally, the shadow side of David Lynch’s various sonic explorations from which the band was borne.”
“Kristae (The Strawberry Girl), a disturbingly deranged track that could be likened to Crystal Castles thanks to it’s delicate undertone mixed with a slightly demonic sound.”
-The Chimera Magazine
“The musicians of the project A Place Both Wonderful And Strange have great potential to become masters of the atmosphere, subtle matter, halftone in their subgenre – this is their strength, and it is exactly above it that you need to work. And then it will be possible to capture cities, build castles, and establish cults.”
