We've got Anglo-Chilean avant-pop phenomenon Intimate Stranger who recently moved to Austin from Santiago. Their album 'Under' is getting extensive radio play, (including Austin's 101 X, BBC Radio 6, Horizonte, Radio Zero and Rock and Pop) and was voted amongst the top national albums of 2010 by 6 of Chile's major music critics. Leading music magazine Extravaganza highlighted them as one of the best live acts in the capital stating: "Live, this quartet is a killer unit that overwhelms the audience with waves of noise and electricity, and has become by far one of the best shows in the capital. Their performance is flawless." After their January 2011 show at the Knitting Factory, New York, Spinner's Annie Reuter, wrote 'Frontwoman Tessie Stranger has been named one of the 'Leading Ladies of Rock' by Rolling Stone Chile and last Friday she demonstrated just why. With powerful stage presence, her vocals immediately grab the listener. Her singing combined with atmospheric guitar effects, soaring synth melodies and solid drum rhythm had concertgoers energized and dancing along.' In the same month The Austin Chronicle chose them as one of Austin's best new acts and among the top ten to watch out for in 2011.
