With their Oldest Member having just Turned 19, Geese Share their Debut Single, ‘Disco’ – an Urgent and Restless Track, and the First Collaborative Release on Play It Again Sam and Partisan
Play It Again Sam and Partisan have joined forces for a very, very exciting new signing. Geese is a band that begins and ends in Brooklyn, as a project between friends to build a home studio out of a basement. Their debut single ‘Disco’ is born from the same ambition: make music by any means necessary. They began recording together with sneakers as mic stands and blankets draped over the amps, all within the afternoon following a school day until they ran the risk of noise complaints. ‘Disco’ merges all the restless anxiety and pent-up frustration of trying to figure out life at 18 with a wall-of-sound immediacy and looseness. Curiously alien, yet strangely familiar.
The band elaborates on the song’s origins: “‘Disco’ was our first big step forward as a band. It’s a very urgent and restless song, which was indicative of all our headspaces at the time. ‘Disco’ has a lot of organized chaos at its core; the music, the lyrics, and even the way we recorded it all speak to a sort of manic energy we were all working through. It’s a song that sounds like it’s perpetually on the verge of collapse – and yet it always manages to keep itself together. There’s a bit of chaos in all of our songs, or a sense that they could explode at any moment. ‘Disco’ represents that the most for us: the little bit of chaos each of us carry and bring to our music.”
On July 10th, Geese will perform at NYC’s Berlin and are also on the line-up for Shaky Knees and Desert Daze festivals this fall. Ticket info HERE.
