Dan Treacy is back and he’s here to stay, as we can see by his intense musical activity in these last years. And here at Elefant we’re celebrating it with a new single that’s really a gift for our label. This limited edition vinyl can be seen as an unintentional ode to the nerd spirit, or an unforeseen tribute to the freak soul, from the perspective of a freethinking, spontaneous, rock n’ roll spirit that is the mind behind our beloved TV PERSONALITIES. So, the title track “People Think That We Are Strange” is an elusive call to flee from judgments (and prejudices), to let people express themselves and be themselves, just as they are and just as our protagonists do on this short and playful single of charming psychedelic pop, falling somewhere between the MODERN LOVERS of Jonathan Richman and the unpredictable craziness of PAVEMENT. The single is completed with the B side “A Glimpse of My Genius”, a hilarious improvisation that evokes a pop-punk drunk VELVET UNDERGROUND full of spontaneity, and even a wink to Lilly Allen! To reveal any more details would ruin the best surprise. Sink into the EP’s incredible lyrics as you let yourself float along with the galloping, unself-conscious riffs in an exercise that must be done at home, or in the bar, or lying in the grass… but always with the record player. Then who’ll say we’re strange?! Vinyl freaks of the world – Unite!
