Strange Ranger releasing ‘Daymoon’ (stream “Hydration Is Key”)

Strange Ranger Daymoon

Portland, OR via Montana indie rockers Strange Ranger (fka Sioux Falls) recently signed to Tiny Engines for their new album Daymoon, and we’re now premiering its new single “Hydration Is Key.” The song brings together a handful of classic indie rock influences: there’s some early Death Cab for Cutie in the song’s slow, longing backdrop, some early Modest Mouse in the vocal delivery, and a little Microphones in the intentionally lo-fi recording. If you dig that kinda stuff, there’s a good chance “Hydration Is Key” will be right up your alley. Listen below.

The album comes out October 6 via Tiny Engines (pre-order). You can stream two other songs off the album here.

Strange Ranger have a few shows coming up, including one in Seattle with Chastity Belt. No upcoming NYC show at the moment, but they did just play here at Trans-Pecos last week (9/10). UPDATE: They have a TBA Brooklyn show on November 2 and a show at Fordham on November 3. All of their upcoming dates are listed below.
