The Miami Better Strangers quartet, which includes Nic Collins, son of Phil, who was just seen by thousands of Genesis fans around the world as the band wrapped up their The Last Domino? world tour with Nic on drums, released a video for their brand new single But I don’t know your namewhich you can watch below.
The quartet started writing songs after meeting in school, inspired by classic and contemporary bands like Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Tame Impala, Porcupine Tree, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Genesis.
Alongside Collins are vocalist deCasa (better known as Luis Santiago), guitarist Joey Rodriguez and bassist Yang Waingarten. Musical speed cameras recently included Nic as #2 in their fan-voted Top Five Prog Dummers poll.
“It’s hard for me to sing about things that I can’t really connect with,” deCasa says of the new single. “Most of what I write is directly inspired by personal stories or those of close friends. This authenticity has a huge effect on the delivery when we are recording or performing live.
Better Strangers are currently playing clubs, festivals and slots in the US, UK and Europe. But I don’t know your name is available on all streaming platforms.
