Here’s the video for Popstrangers heavy hitting psych-garage jam “What Else Could They Do?”. Luke Mcpake directed it. It’s the 2nd single off their debut LP Antipodes, which comes out February 26 on Carpark Records. Here’s their 1st single, “Heaven”.
Definitely can hear why they are garnering some Cloud Nothings comparisons.

Out of New Zealand and into our headphones come Popstrangers. They’re releasing their debut album Antipodes with Carpark Records on February 26.
“Heaven” sounds like a modern slice of 90s Britpop. You know, the likes of Oasis and Supergrass. Living off the fumes of tight guitar riffs over Beatles-esque vocals that are are both catch and uplifting.
It’s a dreamy song that’s infectiously catchy for all the right reasons.
