Based in Montreal, Strangerfamiliar, the name under which the enigmatic, esoteric and endlessly intriguing Ilichna Morasky performs, has delivered a new video, “Insecure”. Morasky’s predilection for the abstract and her ability to provide an understated musical counterpoint to the gut-wrenching emotions behind the track’s lyrics are but two of these piece’s charms. Her movements in the video are equally integral to our appreciation of the tune’s weight.

"The Montreal-based multi-faceted artist is officially on our radar.

Strangerfamiliar just released La Secuencia, a 5-song EP that explores the notion of time, astrology and numerology while reflecting on on the past year where she found her way back to self-trust."

ride the tempo

"Psychedelic, oscillating synths replace the Amazon’s cicadas and birds as the steady foundation for the track’s trippy beat, which gradually shifts in complexity, adding and subtracting elements as the panned snares echo off the layers of haunting
back-up vocals."

“Delivering a lyrical electro-pop and folk tinged sound, [Fire Under Water] establishes her first musical foray with a very personal tone where vocals intertwine to create soothing soundscapes. An artist to look out for in 2016.”

A&R FACTORY

"Insecure is a track which stems out from raw emotions felt during heartbreak but it sounds nothing the many typical pop songs which delve into the same subject matter."

Le Canal Auditif

"Ilichna Morasky is a visual artist who posses a talent for music.  Here she proves it with her debut EP Fire Under Water which contains four songs of the dream-pop electro variety. She builds her pieces with synth loops, percussion, ukulele and her central voice. It's interesting and it gives us a taste of what this project will be."

who...

Strangerfamiliar is a Chilean born, Canadian raised visual artist and self-taught musician currently based in Montreal. A one woman band building ethereal vocal, ukulele, drum, and synth loops, Strangerfamiliar’s sound is much like drifting into a dream of an isolated neon church deep in an Amazonian jungle. Dubbed crypop: a new genre for when you want to dance and cry at the same time. Strangerfamiliar’s music is most closely associated with dream pop. Voir.ca has described StrangerFamiliar’s music as “delivering a lyrical electro-pop and folk tinged sound, [Fire Under Water] establishes her first musical foray with a very personal tone where vocals intertwine to create soothing soundscapes,” and has described her as “an artist to look out for.”
