In 2016, two unlikely collaborators happened upon a night of bad whiskey and profound storytelling. The topics that Jette and Charlie discussed on the course of that night are as lost as they are unimportant. What is important is that the following night they met again – this time on purpose, this time at a music studio – bent on taking a few risks. They laid down a few tracks, upgraded the booze and agreed to called themselves The Hours Strange.
The Hours Strange is the pop-noir electronica duo comprised of singer Jette Kelly and bassist-composer Charlie T. Their music spins out of the countless passionate conversations the two have had on books, film, photography and – duh – other people’s songs. Their varied influences can be found on the works of Massive Attack, Won Kar-Wai, Tom Waits, Haruki Murakami, Yasmine Hamdan, Gregory Crewdson, Barry Adamson and on the finest of malts.
