First Look at Familiar Looking Strangers New Track SATURDAY NIGHT
Familiar Looking Strangers grew up in the true English home of rock and roll, Liverpool, England. They played the Liverpool scene heavily in their early years including performances at the birthplace of The Beatles, The Cavern Club. Following the release of their full-length studio album Love, Hate And Heartbreak in 2012 (stream here), the group is set to release their new self-titled EP on June 10th via the Grafton, WI-based imprint KNE. The EP boasts five infectious tracks that mix Americana roots-rock and blues with British pop sensibilities, and features their new single "Saturday Night."

The wah-wah guitar and police siren that open "Saturday Night" may lead one to think she has stumbled onto a soundtrack for a '70's police drama. Alas, it is not, although anyone looking to develop a retro police drama should probably take note.
Frontman Vinny McPoland says of the song, "'Saturday Night' was originally written early 2009 and demoed later that year in a rehearsal room environment. The final cut was recorded in the US after a night out in Milwaukee. It inspired a new darker direction for the song which turned the chorus from a major to minor and added a final verse." The tune clearly reflects the band's interest in a straightforward take on the classic rock formula. The soulful guitar playing and electric organ that form the foreground of "Saturday Night" are the stuff of numerous a classic rock track.
