Strange Kids is an indie, alternative, pop rock band that was conceived from a long distance friendship of two people; Kai Tezca Custodio, a transplant to Denver, CO, and Ted Pommer; both were born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.
Kai moved to Denver four years ago and Ted still resides in Brooklyn. Pommer and Custodio were bandmates prior to Kai’s move to Colorado. They continued to talk about music and were interested in creating something new despite of the long distance. They traded ideas via email. Tracks were sent back and forth and eventually led to fully recorded songs.
The current line-up consists of Kai Custodio who plays sharp like a knife guitar riffs and sings melodic vocals; Brooke Theis (of the Carnivores) plays bass with a dark edge and incorporates a sonically rich low-end. Lastly, Ryan Elwood brings a solid percussive force to the trio.
Strange Kids is currently building a fan base in the Denver area and NYC through local shows and internet buzz; they are lauded to being stylistically compared to the likes of the Pixies, PJ Harvey and Fugazi. [+]
