L.A.-based married couple Bridgette Moody and John Seasons call themselves Haunted Summera play on their last names that appropriately matches the duos ethereal sound. Brittle guitar blended with spacey synth, eerie vocals and the occasional clarinet: the resulting bedroom dream pop is hypnotic and the perfect soundtrack to a sleepy afternoon, or a mushroom trip in a meadow.
- KS (Santa Cruz's Good Times Weekly)
Haunted Summer crafts languid pop music, adorned with orchestral strings and electronic textures that recall Soft Bulletin- era Flaming Lips.-Candice Aman (KXSC Radio)
Windswept vocals, sultry strings and spacey guitar blend together beautifully. The whole thing is mysterious and engrossing enough that it gets under your skin and stirs your own private nostalgia.

STRANGERS BY ACCIDENT
Hailing from the same dirty-water city that birthed favorites like Aerosmith, The Pixies, and Guster, and new indie heroes like the Ballroom Thieves and Honeysuckle, Strangers by Accident are an authentic, energetic indie-folk act with an old-school respect for songwriting. Their debut EP, recorded at BearTone Records in 2016, was released less than two years after Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne met as strangers on a rainy day in Boston, played a song called Accident, and started playing open-mics as an acoustic duo.
