Stringtheory easily fit in a camp with bands like The Police, U2, and R.E.M., all kings of the airwaves. The big choruses are back and Stringtheory are ahead of the game. “We grew up in the 80's so we are very familiar with the power of a strong melody and a good hook.

Press Info

String Theory purveys a rich combination of sleazy lyrics, manic vibrato vocals, punchy hooks, and slow ska rhythms. At least that's what can be heard on a first listening of initial track 'Fortune Teller'. Coming on all Fergal Sharkey at a drunken party may be one way of grabbing one's attention, but it is the much more grown-up acoustic indie anthem 'Spin' that carries String Theory's magic recipe of beauty, passion and attractive oddness. The emotional vocal crescendo, constant key changes and disorienting epic structure is a masterpiece that is slightly redolent of Jeff Buckley's 'Grace'.

Dig deeper into Stringtheory’s music and there is something far more meaningful than just a song that sticks in your head. The bands charismatic polished writing seems effortless and their ability to create up-tempo alternative pop seems disturbingly natural.

After a solid year of recording and production, 13 tracks made it to their debut release “Spin” (May 2004), which immediately garnered great response from fans and radio. “We are not about trying to be clever or difficult. We're about delivering songs that speak about real things and that push people’s buttons.” Their CD release party at the Middle East (downstairs) in Cambridge, MA was advertised heavily on major radio. Bringing over 200 people and selling 100+ albums, the night was a total success. Currently their CD is available at cdbaby.com and Newbury Comics.
