2019 | Thai quintet mixing lo-fi garage rock with traditional music from Thailand

Go deeper.
On their latest album, Khana Bierbood call themselves Strangers from the Far East, but there’s something strangely familiar about the Thai quintet’s debut LP. Throwing garage rock, surf, and psychedelic pop into one delightfully lo-fi mix, the seven-track album recalls the warm, radiating vibes of the ’60s and early ’70s, yet the consistent influence of traditional music from Thailand serves to inject its common inspirations with a refreshingly uncommon edge.

The harmonious marrying of East and West may be the most immediate feature of Strangers from the Far East, but what’s most rewarding about the album is just how well-constructed and compelling its tracks are. Given that Khana Bierbood had been a band for seven years before releasing the record, their songwriting prowess shouldn’t be much of a surprise, but their tuneful and infectious guitar pop feels like a revelation nonetheless.
