SoS say, “Geese has had our attention since their singles dropped into the middle of last year. The a sides teased what would become one of the years best and surprisingly most mature and exciting indie rock albums of 2021, Projector. After getting to know the band it’s hard to believe that they were in high school when they recorded much of the album. other helpful tactics to keep mentally well. It’s reassuring to see this in such a young group of New Yorkers.”

Geese share, “The most important thing in mental health is really talking about it. It’s really hard, you know, cuz those conversations are, are almost never fun. Forming a unit and a little family, you know, especially when it feels like a lot of things are moving around and there’s a lot of changing scenery and a lot of new things and new people.

Brooklyn 5-piece 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 album Projector is born from the same ambition: make music by any means necessary. The album’s nine songs merge all the restless anxiety and pent-up frustration of trying to figure out life at 18 with a wall-of-sound immediacy and looseness.

Equal parts headphones and dancefloor. Curiously alien, yet strangely familiar. The album was written, produced, and recorded by Geese during their junior and senior years of high school at their home studio (a space they lovingly dub “The Nest”).Singer Cameron Winter would write each song, and then the band-guitarist Gus Green, guitarist Foster Hudson, bassist Dominic DiGesu, and drummer Max Bassin-would learn, practice, and record all in the time between the end of school and their hard 10pm cutoff when (in true NYC fashion) the neighbors would start complaining.
