Starting out as a recording project between Angus Lord, Claudia Serfaty and

Stephanie Hughes, the germ of what would eventually become the Stroppies was formed around a
kitchen table in Melbourne in early 2016. The initial idea was to create open ended music, collaged

quickly and haphazardly together on a Tascam 4 track Portastudio that drew on stream of conscious-
ness creativity and a DIY attitude. The desire to move beyond the pre programmed drum patterns

available on their Casio Keyboard led to the addition of Rory Heane on drums and a more conven-
tional band dynamic. In Late 2016, Alex Macfarlane recorded the band in their lounge room direct to 4 track, capturing 7 songs

that would become their 2017 self titled cassette tape debut. The songs were bounced back and forth from tape machine to com-
puter to tape machine to computer again. In keeping with the bands initial aesthetic, dubs were laid over a 4 month period incre-
mentally on different devices. They make modest, idiosyncratic pop songs that reward with repeated listening.
