November 17, 2023 BY Emma Orland

Los Angeles alt-pop band The Strike captivate audiences with their unique blend of 80’s rock influences and contemporary, dance floor-ready lyrics with “Soundtrack.” Listen HERE.

“’Soundtrack’ is a song about the person who keeps you grounded. For those who live with their head in the clouds, life can seem like continuous scenes from a movie. This penchant for daydreaming comes with its own unique set of pros and cons. It can lead to creativity, or it can lead to a tendency to constantly replay minor setbacks in your mind. ‘Soundtrack’ is written for the person who shows up consistently, and provides the musical score that plays reliably in the background,” elaborates The Strike.

“Soundtrack” is the first single release since their 2022 album and Nettwerk debut The Lost Years. Stay up to date on upcoming releases in 2024 by following the band on socials.


Hailing from Los Angeles The Strike are an alternative pop band that received international attention after the release of their debut album Faint of Heart, including a sync placement in the Netflix hit-movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Legendary Grammy award winning artist Quincy Jones handpicked the band for a 3 month live residency in Dubai. Afterwards they went on to tour in China, Australia as well through the US with artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Journey, Kelly Clarkson, Cold War Kids and more. Known for blending nostalgic keyboard sounds from the 1980’s, with modern production, anthemic choruses and infectious guitar riffs, The Strike have received glowing editorial support from publications like CLASH, Billboard and more, drawing comparisons to The 1975 and The Band CAMINO.
