Strangers By Accident / Atlas Lab
Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne met on Craigslist in November 2014, and the first time the two Strangers sat down with their guitars, they broke into a song called "Accident."
Brian had grown up playing violin, then guitar, and started writing and performing his first original songs in college. He played in a few different indie-rock bands from California to Colorado, before the sudden end of a relationship and a move back to Boston in 2014 saw him start writing the spare, solo acoustic songs that Amy first heard online.
Amy was a classically trained vocalist, and taught herself to play guitar in high school. In the early stages of Strangers by Accident, she was taking medical school prerequisites at Harvard University, when her apartment suddenly burned to the ground in the winter of 2015. She took this as a sign from the universe, quit school, and made music her focus.
The indie-folk duo Strangers by Accident was born that cold, rainy day in a ramshackle Boston apartment, and two years later, the two singer-songwriters have become a powerful live act, and are at work on their second album. They've stayed true to their influences: Nirvana, Ryan Adams, The Head and the Heart, strong beer, and cheap bourbon; to name a few; but also discovered a unique union of sound in their raw lyrics, homemade suitcase drums, acoustic and electric guitars, and most notably, their harmonies, which were once described by an audio engineer as "able to cast a spell over the room."
Formed in fall 2014, Boston-based five-piece Atlas Lab came together over street performances and endless winter songwriting retreats. Anchored by lead vocalist Soleis ethereal, soulful style, the band blends lush psychedelic rock, deep grooves, looped vocals, and traditional folk songwriting to create textured, warm tapestries of sound.
The band's first studio EP, Wake Up Slow, was released in January 2016 to praise from local, national, and international blogs. It was featured on the Bandcamp Weekly online radio show and the New and Notable section of Bandcamp's homepage, and earned Atlas Lab a nomination for Deli Magazine's 2016 Indie Pop Act of the Year in 2016 and a spot on Sound of Boston's list of "Boston's Best Local Albums of 2016". The band's first full length release, "Glory The Night" was released July 2017.
