Strange Phases (Curt formerly of The Bixby Knolls)

Strange Phases was born from the vision of guitarist/vocalist Curt Barlage in 2015. Fresh from the split of his previous band, The Bixby Knolls, Curt instantly immersed himself in the dim, red lights and cigarette haze of an east downtown Los Angeles studio to begin the next chapter of his musical endeavors. Joined by drummer Travis Drum, acquainted by chance meeting, the pair would move beyond the notion that Strange Phases was just a creative hub of scattered ideas and late night demos. Guitarist/keyboardist Monica Mendoza and bassist Patrick Mertens soon joined, completing the line-up and fully functional force known as Strange Phases.



10 songs would be created, compiled and recorded throughout 2016 for a debut full length album titled, Art of Restart. Driven, yet atmospheric guitars take a front seat, along with confident vocal melodies carried by words of hopefulness, frustration, societal indignation and spiritual freedom. Vintage organs, analog synths, violins, and cellos are entwined with the thunder of the rhythm section, while a Japanese Koto makes several cameos.



Art of Restart, the debut release from Strange Phases is due out in autumn of 2017.
