Stranger The Horse is a rock/indie band from Copenhagen, Denmark consisting of Julian Falck, Anders Christensen, Simon Dyhr, Lasse Storgaard and Jens Stoklund.
Julian Falck and Anders Christensen met in 2010 when Julian sat in for the drummer in a band that Anders was playing with. After collaborating on an album by Karoline Munksnæs (Julian as producer, Anders as guitarist) and playing in Pernille Gunvad’s touring band, The Marines, the two decided to form a band. While gigging at local Copenhagen venues like Rust, Klub Geyser, Operaen and Blågårds Apotek, they recorded and released a number of songs that were met with critical acclaim from radcircle.com as well as having one song included on the iTunes release Absolute Danish Artists.
Taking influence from The Flaming Lips, Little Feat and Neil Young, as well as from the sounds of country, punk and various Mexican bands, Stranger The Horse combines hauntingly beautiful songs with rock ‘n’ roll energy, the borderless sounds of world music and tight vocal-harmonies.
Julian Falck, the main songwriter in Stranger The Horse is no stranger to mixing various musical styles and genres. Starting out as a drummer with his father’s band at the tender age of 11 and playing live almost every weekend until his early twenties, Julian learned to navigate between country, blues, bluegrass, jigs, reels and rock on any given night. He was further educated in music as a producer of several albums by various Danish artists, as well as writing his own music, some of which was used in Danish television-productions such as “Borgen”, “Forbrydelsen” and “Broen”.
At this point in their history, Stranger The Horse is a hardworking band, ready to release their second album; Play It On The Tannoys and working hard on a third in between gigs.
