Hailing from Portland, Oregon, STRFKR is an indie-electronic band that combines heavy beats with a psychedelic sound. Initially a solo project by band member Josh Hodges, STRFKR soon transformed into the next big face of EDM with the addition of members Shawn Glassford, Keil Corcoran, and Patrick Morris. Swaying between the names Pyramid and Pyramidd since the band was formed in 2007, they finally settled on the name Starfucker, most commonly stylized as STRFKR.
Today the band released their seventh LP, a “new ‘rarities’ album of old songs rescued off of [Hodges’] dying computer.” The album titled Vault Vol. 1 is the first in a three record series and includes twenty songs that total about 37 minutes. With tracks such as “Rachel” and “Boogie Woogie,” fans are given an inside look behind the making of STRFKR. When compared to their previous releases, Vault Vol. 1 certainly has a more mellow vibe that goes hand in hand with their album Miracle Mile.
One of the most iconic aspects of STRFKR is their live performances. Each concert explodes with energy as the band is known to put on one hell of a show, reciting their beloved tracks in spacesuits, dazzling minidresses, and ratty wigs — all while throwing blow up sex dolls into the audience. Each of these elements creates an extraordinary experience and ensures that the night you see STRFKR is one you’ll never forget.
STRFKR provides listeners with an aura like no other. Their music is jam-packed with synthpop and voltaic flavors and is essential for any party or late night drive across the interstate — and if you’re ever given the chance to see them perform live, they’ll give you an unforgettable concert experience. If you enjoy Tame Impala, Passion Pit, and Washed Out, then STRFKR is the band for you. You can catch some of their most popular and notable tracks here.
