More details for the show can be found here.
Earlier this week, TEEN VOUGE (who partnered with STRANGERS YOU KNOW to premiere the official video for their single “Used”) raved that the song, “…features a stealthy beat and a rhythm that will transport you to the fields of Coachella.” The single charted in the Top 10 (#8) on Spotify‘s U.S. and Global Viral charts with over 600,000 plays and SiriusXM’s AltNation has also been an early supporter of the track, featuring it on their Advanced Placement show for several weeks. Watch the new video for “Used” here.

STRANGERS YOU KNOW is no stranger to the festival scene. In fact, the pair–Grady Lee (vocals, guitar) and Adam Haagen (piano, guitar, vocals, banjo, mandolin)–met three years ago by happenstance in the heart of the desert as attendees of the iconic Coachella Music and Arts Festival. Bonding over synths, beats, guitars, lyrics and melody,the foundation of STRANGERS YOU KNOW was born.
