Driven by the need to bridge the gap between artist and listener, Miss Geo’s debut studio album “Connection” is an exploratory journey into the emotions that bind people together. Primarily mixed by Rob Arbelo (Brain Tan), with a contributing track mixed by Matthew Beaudoin (St. Vincent, Ryan Adams), “Connection” brings Miss Geo’s distinct instrumental and lyrical aesthetic to the forefront, and introduces them to the public.
Each song represents a different emotion, and morphs stylistically from the dirty electro underground beats and fuzzy dance bass lines of ‘Miles from Home’ and ‘Techno Entry’, to the sheen melodic synth layers of ‘Sea Between’, and stretches higher to the dream pop bohemian rhythms heard in ‘Daydreaming’.
The songs are further articulated by the lyrics and melodies that help personify each emotion. ‘Sea In Between’ explores hope and youthful exuberance: “We’re love and lust and bones, all the places we could go.” ‘Answers’ reflects on betrayal. It’s the confession you’ve always wanted from a swindler, who broke your heart: “I know it hurts when you’re playing for keeps, but just let go cause knives cut too deep.” While their dance anthem ‘Techno Entry’ is an encounter with a moment of indecision; “You turn to face it; good luck, just make a move…the past and future they both talk.”
The Boston-based band first gained exposure in 2014 when Filter Magazine picked up their first single “Waves” and described their songs as a “perfect mix of fuzz and synth”. Consisting of an international pair, Pascaline Mary (hailing from Paris, France) manages the synths and backing vocals, and Abby Heredia (Filipino-American) takes the helm on the lead vocals and guitar. They were brought together by chance at the Apple store while attending a recording demonstration, and found themselves bonding over similar musical influences and their mutual love of the DIY music making process. They write, record, and produce all their songs.
Since their formation, they have released two EP’s (Self Titled, and Shapes) which have gained a stream of recognition within the blogsphere. They’ve also been invited as supporting acts for The Blow, Lovers, and Robert Delong among others.
In 2016, they added a third live member to the mix, Polish multimedia artist Alex Miklowski on bass. In regards to what they hope to accomplish with this release and their live shows, Mary says; “We embraced our joy and darkness in this album. After spending time exploring different creative processes, we feel it’s a new fusion point for us as a band.” Heredia adds, “Each song represents an emotion and interpretation of our experiences. Our lives are so intertwined and we hope people can feel something from it.”
Their full-length album “Connection” is scheduled for release September 16th and will be accompanied by a national tour.
Listening to Breaking Forms is to step into an energetic ethereal spacious rock duet. It’s sometimes upbeat, sometimes dark and scary, but always liberating. Autobiographical music based on the premise that what is created, shall be, but what needs to be broken, broken must be. Married by day, evil fighters by night. Breaking Forms is a combination of space aesthetics and boundless love.
