Stray Monroe create an attention holding soundtrack. There is a drifting melancholia that permeates, the sparkling guitar, layered bass and expressive percussion, which is delivered through the gliding vocal which unhurriedly extends notes and phrases, giving the sense of being delivered at a different tempo to the instrumentation allowing the quartet to deliver music of muliti-texturing.

The most recent single, which came out earlier this month, is Happy Accidents.

Providing a distinctive sound to their upbeat indie-dance is the electric piano which enables Pacific to add not just a different texturing but it is deployed to enable the music to create changes in rhythm and intensity with the immediacy of a light-switch turning on and off and thereby deliver music that has a continual layer of the guitars and percussion with the keys creating the dynamism.
