The Skinny: The latest from industrial-tinged, female-led indie, alt-rock band Stroamata, is a song called “Anything” and can now be streamed via SoundCloud! The band, who have been busy writing some new tunes just in time for your Summer playlist, are making waves in their hometown.

As a self-defined “future rock” band, Brooklyn-based Stroamata strives to pioneer a style that pushes the boundaries of rock n roll, drawing on their, “penchant for industrial pop while embracing both subdued grooves and noisy climaxes” (For the Love of Punk). “Stroamata connects sentiments to curate the urgency of today’s now generation… The inner drive and kick inside is wrapped up in the hunger pangs of guitars on the world premiere exclusive of ‘Anything,’ where the rush of desperation hangs between the high stakes and games of chance, opportunity or destitute straits of desolation” (IMPOSE Magazine).
