Geographer Takes A Leap Forward With Blossoming And Contemplative 'Alone Time' EP, Band To Debut New Songs On Their Upcoming Tour Dates25-City Nationwide Tour Includes Special Performances With Betty Who
Geographer, the San Francisco indie-pop quartet led by multi-instrumentalist Mike Deni, will bring their spellbinding live show to 25 cities coast to coast this summer, including special performances with Betty Who and a stop at NYC's Brooklyn Steel. The band will perform songs from Deni's brand new, forthcoming 'Alone Time' EP, the follow up to his 2015 LP 'Ghost Modern' which Nerdist praised for its "sweet and airy vocals atop soaring, string-enhanced electronic compositions."
Deni is a compelling front man, known for captivating crowds with his crisp vocals and magnetic stage presence, and the addition of Joyce Lee on electric cello adds a unique element to the band's performances, which Ladygunn has called, "dynamic, magnetic and expressive."
The 'Alone Time' EP, which will be released this fall, is a leap forward for Geographer and sees him refining his brand of blossoming, emotive pop, while pushing the boundaries of his dreamy yet expansive synth-driven, cello-adorned sound. Deni's candid and contemplative lyrics read like a diary entry, exploring themes of love, loss and self-doubt, though his hook-driven melodies and finely crafted orchestral arrangements remain bubbly and optimistic. SPIN appropriately called Geographer, "tailor-made for your own personal late-night dance party."
Geographer is made up of Deni on lead vocals, guitar and keys, Lee on synths and electric cello, Duncan Nielsen on guitar, bass, vocals and keys, and Cody Rhodes on drums. The band will perform almost all of the songs from the new EP, giving fans an early taste of what's to come.
Geographer was born when Deni found a synthesizer on the streets of San Francisco, shortly after moving there from his home state of New Jersey following a series of deaths in his family. He used that instrument to write what would become the first Geographer songs, and since then has continued to produce the driving, heart-pounding, synth-infused epics that define his sound.
Geographer embarks on tour with Betty Who on August 10th. Full routing below.
