Today, Vancouver’s own Sex With Strangers premiere the music video for their new single “WTFK” exclusively through Northern Transmissions. Following the release of a new EP Space In Time in April 2016, Sex With Strangers recently released their sixth studio album Discourse on Northern Light Records. The video for “WTFK” is directed by Tobias Schuch, with the song being produced by Jason Corbett of Jacknife Sounds.
Imagined as Duran Duran caught in a rundown, Vancouver, BC’s Sex With Strangers are the sonic equivalent of a Swiss army knife, drawing on a wide variety of influences ranging from new wave, to post-punk, to dark pop. Voted “Best Band (Unsigned)” in The 2016 Georgia Straight “Best of Vancouver” Awards, SWS revels in the exploration of a wide variety of genres while still managing to create their own unique sound – one highlighted by robust bass grooves, lush keyboards 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 in 2007, including performances at SXSW, CMJ, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Rifflandia, Sled Island, Junofest and Shambhala.
