Can a band that might remind you of the local house band achieve success beyond its city limits? Room Full of Strangers is definitely going to find out.

With the release of their debut LP, Bad Vacation, in October and performances at CMJ and the eastern US, the Orlando quartet have established a growing following with their catchy, proto-punk-infused, garage rock. Another way to think about Room Full of Strangers – imagine if Jonathan Richman and Richard Swift co-produced an album by the Arctic Monkeys. And like the Arctic Monkeys’ award-winning Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, Bad Vacation is 30 minutes of intense music that will make you want to dance.

Besides the high-energy of their music, the band has a knack for writing witty songs about mundane events and, well, not your typical music topics. With tracks like “Guest Bath”, “Bad Vacation”“Summers in Space”, and “You’re PC”, Room Full of Strangers have a light-hearted approach to songwriting much like Mac DeMarco and HOMESHAKE. Should there be another National Lampoon’s movie, maybe they could write the soundtrack.

Bad Vacation can be purchased on the band’s Bandcamp site, iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, and Google Play. You can also hear the entire album below.
