Strange Culprits creates genre-defying music that draws inspiration from rock, pop, classic R&B, and folk. Strange Culprits aims to flip the bird at being constrained to one style of music, choosing instead to operate by the simple credo that a good song is a good song, whether it was inspired by Motown, Woody Guthrie, or Cheap Trick.
To put it in terms of contemporary bands, Strange Culprits is somewhere between White Denim, James Blake, and The National.
The lineup is: Jason Buckingham (vocals, guitar) and Randy DaRoza (bass).
Strange Culprits' beta recording of "Concrete In the Rain" was chosen by Indie Rock Cafe as one of the best singles of August 2013.
For 2014, Strange Culprits will be releasing a series of singles, with the aim of releasing a compilation at the end of the year, and performing live in the Bay Area and beyond. [+]
