Static of a Stranger is an indie-folk/dream-pop duo based out of Kalamazoo.
Stacy Koviak and Chris Miroslaw are no strangers to the Kalamazoo music scene. They’ve been creating music together for over a decade in various bands (Treading Bleu / Dooley Noted) and individually for another decade prior. Embarking on an entirely new musical endeavour, Static of a Stranger’s musical repertoire spans from Koviak’s acoustic singer-songwriter roots all the way to layered atmospheric and ethereal anthemic offerings. Driven by potent, introspective lyrics ― Koviak’s emotive and versatile voice along with her dynamic guitar playing allow her to intuitively float between rock, folk and pop ― all infused with hints of soulful jazz. Sounding sweet one moment, then powerfully smokey and rich the next ― it’s been described “like chili pepper in hot chocolate.” Combine that with Miroslaw’s stylish and creatively atmospheric guitar work and the duo’s flexible multi-instrumentalism ― they deftly weave profound tales of love, loss, hope, and emotional struggle into intoxicating music that bends borders and genres.
