German alternative goth band promises a good haunting. For many people, The Cure was the "be all and end all" of the Gothic rock scene. Curious, however, aims to make their own mark in the genre. Almost by foresight, Curious initially traversed their musical dreams by becoming a cover band of The Cure. Although they subsequently created their own music, it doesn't take a genius to see where their influence came from. The Intimate Stranger includes 10 tracks that powerfully channels The Cure during their Disintegration days.
