NEW LP: ‘3D COUNTRY’ OUT 23 JUNE VIA PARTISAN/PLAY IT AGAIN SAM PRE-SAVE HERE
LISTEN TO NEW TRACK: “MYSTERIOUS LOVE”
Brooklyn 5-piece Geese have shared “Mysterious Love,” a new track and accompanying music video from their anticipated sophomore album ‘3D Country,’ out 23 June via Partisan Records/Play It Again Sam.
The new music arrives as the band prepare for a stretch of UK shows this September – full dates and details here.
The new song “Mysterious Love” fries and bends through the full spectrum of what ‘3D Country’ has to offer – showcasing both the band’s most angular experimentations and their warmest harmonies to date. “Mysterious Love” picks up where previous singles “Cowboy Nudes” and the album’s title track left off, fusing fragments of classic rock into a sound that is wholly the band’s own, while painting a picture of a newer, weirder America.
Geese frontman Cameron Winter explains:
“This song is about a dozen ‘90s rock cliches mixed into one little over-produced package. We like the contrast in mood between the first and second halves. We used to punctuate the very end with one last hit and be done with it, but then one day Max [Bassin, drummer] just kept hitting his drums, and we kept doing the same ending hit for like, two minutes. When we recorded it, there were about 40 hits, but our label begged us to cut them out. We ended up at around 15 after negotiations.”
In the summer of 2021, Geese emerged from out of nowhere, sparking a hype cycle unlike anything that had been seen for a young American rock band in recent memory. Suddenly a band that had previously planned to release some music, break up, and go away to college was touring the world. They made their TV debut on Colbert, were profiled by the NY Times, Stereogum Band To Watch, Consequence Artist Of The Month, Paste Best Of What’s Next, Rolling Stone called them “indie rock prodigies,” and they toured with Jack White and Spoon.
And during this entire process, that very same band everyone was getting to know ceased to exist. On a practical level, Geese are still the group we were introduced to in 2021: vocalist Cameron Winter, guitarist Gus Green, guitarist Foster Hudson, bassist Dom DiGesu, and drummer Max Bassin. But spiritually, Geese have returned as an entirely different prospect. ‘3D Country‘ is the sound of a restless, adventurous band redefining themselves.
Co-produced by the band and James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, Shame), ‘3D Country’ us an explosion in both scope and vision for the group. With a heightened ambition fueling ‘3D Country,’ the band created a bugged-out, wild, unpredictable ride — an almost phantasmagoric reflection of contemporary life. Drummer Max Bassin sums up, “It feels like going to the circus and instead of having a good time, everyone is trying to kill you.”
