The Hours Strange are insightful chroniclers of the pressure and demands of modern day relationships. Hence their mantra: ‘Love. Sex. Obsession. Absence. Art.’ Jette’s artistic coming of age with Appalachian jazz musicians and DC’s house music scene gifted her with a kaleidoscopic range that’s sometimes compared to St. Vincent and Beth Gibbons. When anchored on Charlie’s deep bass grooves and nineties British influences, the result is coolly multi-genre — and easy to embrace.
