Stereo Off is an indie rock band with hints of electro, hailing from New York City. It’s the presence of the electronic twist that really sets these guys apart from the pack. It’s easy to overdo the electronic aspects but Stereo Off gets it just right. The result is a very versatile sound that is both easy to groove to and at the same time, rather mellow.
Formed in 2012, Stereo Off started as a one man show and evolved into the five piece band it is today. Being from New York, the band had no lack of places to play at and they have already played at many of the City’s top venues. Earlier this month, Stereo Off released a self titled, five song EP. The first song “Photographs” is a strong track in itself and really, is just a preview of what’s to come. As you listen to the record, it just seems to get better and better, with each song outdoing the last. Perhaps, my favourite song on the album would be “The Thrill”, a killer song that hooks you immediately and demands that you listen the whole way through. There really isn’t much that I don’t care for in regards to the album and I’m sure the band will just continue to move upwards from here.
In addition, they also have several other songs available on their website, which are also incredibly great and are worth looking into. I look forward to hearing what comes next from this exciting new band.
