about

Since forming in 2008 Streets Kill Strange Animals have received critical acclaim for more than mere references to roadkill; fuzzed out guitar, growling bass lines, pounding drums and layers of electronic mutterings provide a blurry platform for lyrics about just how “interesting” it is to live in 21st century China.

After settling on their current line up in 2010 and playing shows across the People’s Republic, the trio released their first full length Plan B: Back to the Analog Time on Modern Sky records in 2012. Their latest release on Genjing, a two song 7” single, coincides with a China tour taking the band to nineteen venues across the country.

Side A of the record gives us “Through,” an example of Streets Kill Strange Animals at their best; a swirling wall of noise over which Leng Mei’s vocals drift, striking a beautiful balance between intensity and effortless cool that you could expect from the likes of Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine. Meanwhile Side B presents “The Bridge,” a more haunting and somber affair that wouldn’t seem out of place in Billy Corgan’s songbook with words whispered down a crackling telephone line over sounds that manage to both soothe and unsettle.

In case you are not yet convinced here are some nice things that have been said about the band:

“With a name like an off-kilter road safety announcement, Beijing’s Streets Kill Strange Animals are one of the more interesting bands to emerge from the capital in recent years.” - Jake Newby, Timeout Shanghai

“No other country like China understands the meaning of future shock, and no other band like Streets Kill Strange Animals are able to put it to electrified sounds and furious rhythms.” - Jonathan Alpart, The Sound Stage
