Given the growing amount of emerging and oh-so-good indie talents hailing from San Francisco today, there’s definitely something going on in the Bay Area, leading to successful sound experiments and daring melodies paired with unique voices. Voices inspired by a great range of intense emotions, from the purest joy to some kind of vintage nostalgia. Though not quite newcomers, with a 2008 self-released album, “Innocent Ghosts”, synth-pop band Geographer is no exception to the rule. Voted one of the three “undiscovered bands you need to hear now” by SPIN Magazine, Geographer turned our heads with their one-of-a-kind combination of Nintendo-like electronic melodies, cello, simple drums and Mike Deni’s beautiful and almost fragile voice.
“Kites” is the first single from Geographer’s new EP Animal Shapes, which is available on iTunes and at Tricycle Records. This track has a radiant gracefulness and overall thrill that will be sure to light up your day.
