The music of A Place to Bury Strangers can be described as noise rock and psychedelic rock. But if you really want to accurately characterize their sound, you describe them as “loud.” When listening to this spacey yet ear-splitting darkly atmospheric NYC trio, you sort of feel like you’re back in the ‘80s listening to punk music for the first time. The band has come a long way from having their first album’s contract written on a napkin to being able to tour with their biggest influence, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Their most recent album, Transfixiation, was released over two years ago yet their sonically engorged stage presence feels as urgent as ever.
