Stricken City

Stricken City

Stricken City play pop songs lingering on lovers and tramps jumping between places and pictures…

When Iain Pettifer (guitars) first met Rebekah Raa (vocals/keys), they were wearing exactly the same clothes. “How could they not form a band then?”, you’d think, only the pair were actually in high school, in a math class. Nonetheless, as painstaking algebra lessons repeated themselves every week, it soon became apparent that while Raa and Iain couldn’t have been less bothered about square roots, their love for romantic guitar music couldn’t have been better suited.

It was a couple of years later that the pair first began writing together, sparked by Raa’s boredom at university, which resulted in the singer spending her student loan on a guitar and an 8-track recorder. Originally the plan was for Stricken City to consist of just two, until they quickly decided that something was missing and pulled together a full lineup.

While Goldsmiths music student Mike Hyland is the band’s newest member – having taken up bass duties in August of this year and playing his first gig for the band in the back of a taxi – Kit Godfrey has been Stricken City’s long-standing drummer since 2006. “We liked him straight away because he was a drummer called Kit,” says Rebekah, “there was no need for an audition.”

Drawing on influences from The Slits, Life Without Buildings and Young Marble Giants, the band’s new wave, spiky, jangling pop found them being asked to play both London’s TDK festival and Vice Magazine’s Tales Of The Jackalope in 2007, as well as earning them support slots with Mystery Jets, Friendly Fires and Love Is All.
