Stripmall create a dynamic Western-influenced prairie punk that is as delicate as it is aggressive. Reminiscent of a row of shops somewhere between almost and never quite. In the last miles of plastic backlit signage, never where you’re meant to be, but a place you’ll never forget. Stripmall evokes the place where frustration and hope exist. True Alberta contrast where the West meets the concrete.
Hailing from Lethbridge, Alberta, we’re a band that combine elements of surf, garage, psyche and stoner rock to form a unique sound that we’ve dubbed ‘loser-friendly flop house rock’. Heavily influenced by bands like Huevos Rancheros, Man or Astro-man? and Forbidden Dimension, we also take influence from groups like Queens of the Stone Age, Death from Above 1979, the Plugz, and Link Wray.
Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
