Strawberry Runners

Denver's Strawberry Runners stopped into the CPR Performance Studio this month prior to their cassette-single release show at Larimer Lounge on May 24.

The indie pop group made waves at South by Southwest this year, thanks in part to their inclusion in NPR Music's list of 100 bands to see at the music festival in Austin, Texas, last March.

In addition to performing four songs, the band members spoke with Aaron 'Loki' Johnson about the publicity that came from NPR's selection, the collaborative nature of Denver's music community and the dark undertones behind their seemingly cheerful pop songs.

Stream the full session above.

Songs performed:

  • "Hatcher Creek"
  • "Yo Grrrl"
  • "Trouble"
  • "Garden Hose"
