Maudlin Strangers Sign to Vagrant, Debut Overdose EP to be Released January 20th

We are very excited to welcome Maudlin Strangers to the Vagrant family! Formed in 2010, Maudlin Strangers is the project of Agoura Hills, CA native Jake Hays.  

Recorded in Hays’ bedroom, the debut Overdose EP started as an “opportunity to play each instrument,” says Hays. “Live, I only get to play guitar and sing, so the recording process is my outlet to write and play different instruments.” What can only be described as dark-indie-rock, the 4-track EP combines somber lyricis masked by light, upbeat melodies. Hays not only writes all the music, but he designs all the band’s artwork as well.  “ The EP is just an expression of all the thoughts in my weird, restless mind,” Hays laughs. The result is an ambient yet catchy body of work with hints of MuteMath and even Pink Floyd strewn throughout. Track list and artwork can be found below.

Overdose EP will be available nationwide on January 20, 2015. Today, stream a new track off the EP, ‘AIM’ via Indie Shuffle. Maudlin Strangers will be touring the US with Bad Suns and Coasts starting January 24. Click HERE for all upcoming dates.

Overdose EP Track List:
1. AIM
2. Stay Young
3. Overdose
4. Penny
