Strength of Materials "The Promised Year" / "The Wrong Road" (Go-Betweens cover)
Continuing to surprise and impress, Kingfisher Bluez is back with a stunning new 7-inch from Ford Pier's post-punk string quartet Strength of Materials.

The group sees Pier deliver his distinct vocals atop lush, melodic strings from musicians Meredith Bates, Cris Derksen, Elyse Jacobsen and John Kastelic. The two elements combine with wonderful results.

On this particular record we get an arresting original called "The Promised Year" as well as a cover of the Go-Betweens' "The Wrong Road." 

Listen to both Strength of Materials songs below. Kingfisher Bluez will release the new 7-inch on December 8.
