Frenchkiss Records  - the indie known for fostering contemporary delights like  Diet Cig  and  Local Natives  - has a new favorite to share. The label's latest sensation -  Strange Names  - releases " Into Me " today. This NYC treasure of a trio delivers deliciously danceable New Wave pop, telling imaginative tales atop wiry melodies and pulsating synths.

From Minneapolis to Manhattan,  Liam Benzvi ,  Francis Ximenez , and  Fletcher Aleckson  have ignited tastemaking music communities. In 2015, the group released debut album  Use Your Time Wisely to critical delight and toured alongside  Azealia Banks .  Strange Names ' sophomore effort is expected in  early 2018 .

STREAM "INTO ME"

"..they seem to be able to alight on any era or genre – the power-pop perkiness of Supernatural Silence and Only Boy, the early-60s surf-pop harmonies of Overused Phrase, the wannabe John Hughes movie synthpop cuteness of the Neighbourhood – and construct a decent facsimile of it, while giving it their own Strange Names spin. -  The Guardian (Best New Band)

"That high-energy, New Wave-pop-sound is definitely infectious." -  Brookyln Magazine

"Layers of synths, spanning the spectrum from heavy and low-frequency to airy and jaunty, are punctuated with slap-happy drums and unexpectedly piercing lyrics... youthful angst through a retro filter." -  Stereogum
