Strange Stains

Industrial Pop

(Pōneke / Wellington)

A tearer-upper of dancefloors, Strange Stains is the solo project of producer, performer, costumer, and visual artist Aimee Cooki M. 

Strange Stains is currently residing in Te Whanganui-a-Tara and has evolved from a quite minimal DIY style to a much more footwork, dance, and industrial pop-based style. Correlating electronic experimentation with echoes of industrial post punk, Strange Stains brings this sonic world together on the dancefloor, alongside sweet-nothings lyrics and fabulous outfits.


“Her singular approach and excitable energy bring mesmerising and luscious performances of industrial-pop soundscapes that encourage footloose abandon. Inhabiting a nightlife where people lose themselves in Fever Ray and Lydia Lunch, Strange Stains contemplates the nocturnal with one finger raised to the toxic, and welcomes in the joy of unconditional acceptance.” Jonny Marks 

Strange Stains is one of the original members of MESH, a group passionate about creating events for underrepresented DJs. They are currently trying to record everything they have done while this lockdown is still going. Recently, they released a video for their new single, Man Bb. She has toured Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and China, as well as completing an artist residency in Japan, where she also performed live.
