Strange Stains is one of the many projects of Aimee Cooki M; producer, singer, visual artist, and designer. Cooki grew up in Rotorua and now resides in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
Her singular approach, and excitable energy, brings mesmerising and luscious performances of industrial-pop soundscapes that encourage footloose abandon. DIY ableton beats, her faithful synth, and a strapped on microphone are just some of the tools used in crafting fresh aural stains that amplify the poetry of this bogan Madonna.
Strange Stains has recently been part of two compilations; '1.1' under the label ACOLDPLACE, and also on 'Artists in Residence' that was curated by Ludus; the latter was in collaboration with Andrea Mnrd, in a project called sleepy slut.
Strange Stains did the soundtrack for Laura Duffy's most recent project; !ERROR!, and was part of a podcast series 'Better Off Read' that Pip Adams put together.
Strange Stains has played shows in Indonesia, Australia, Japan and China. As well as around Aotearoa.
Right now (2020) she is part of the way through recording a new LP and filming accompanying videos.
