"Band To Watch: Geometrist"

First of all, apologies for not having a ‘Band to Watch’ from last week – it’s been a very busy period of late, but hopefully the full length interview with Slowdim kept you going for a while. But for this week, may I present another Boston-based band, Geometrist. In essence they’re an indie/rock 5-piece, however I think it’s fair to say there’s a lot more depth to them than that tag suggests. When checking out their Facebook profile, I found some brilliant phrases that they’d used to describe themselves, of which I couldn’t resist to include; ‘magicnoise’, ‘algebraicgospel’, ‘mudfunk’ and of course ‘dreampop’.

Geometrist consists of singer/guitarist Jake Capistran, guitarist Mike Larsen, bassist Zack Renschler, and key-tickler Max Rogers, with the recent addition of Capistran’s life-long friend and drummer, Nick Brozek. On the release of their debut EP in April this year, it is clear to see band’s diverse musical tastes in which a range and quality of tracks have been produced as a result. Something else the band made clear when they got in touch with us, is the influence of folk music, specifically in the storytelling and melodies that happen throughout the EP.

The ‘Geometrist EP’ consists of 5 tracks, of which you can listen to in full here. The fourth track, Coal Miner (I Belong With You), is the epitome of some of the themes in the material they’ve produced. The guys said that it’s “bursting with themes of love and romanticized heartache, while celebrating forward movement, wide-eyed hope, and a “tis better to have loved and lost..” mentality”. The opening song California is a dreamy, melodic number and sets the scene for the following tracks that follow the themes previously mentioned. When first listening to this online the whole of the Musical Hashtag team were more than pleasantly surprised by what we heard so it’s definitely worth checking these guys out. The featured guitar licks in the second track Pilot are also a highlight on the EP showing the depth and quality that Geometrist can offer.

You can buy the EP for a price of your choice on their bandcamp page and of course check out their latest updates on Twitter. If you’re in the Boston area lucky you, as there seems to be a rising scene of good live music, of which I’m sure Geometrist can be included. Also on a quick note, I really do like the cover artwork for the EP! Best of luck to the guys for the rest of 2013!

"Band Of The Week. Geometrist"

Boston 5-piece Geometrist fuse together rock, indie, folk and funk to create music that is both energetic, diverse and at times, truly beautiful. The band put their eclectic sound down to differing musical tastes within the group, something they feel makes their sound more personal. Geometrist aim to infuse each individual taste into their sound and it is this that has helped them create somewhat of a musical hybrid.

Geometrist’s self-titled EP was released last month and is a stellar collection of songs that explore the notions of young love, recovery and moving forward despite the setbacks. The E.P opens with ‘California,’ a folk inspired track that oozes charisma and charm. The song is full of indie vibes with rock drums and energetic guitars. Yet the sound that comes through most is folk and blues and the beauty and emotion portrayed in the lyrics is what makes the song both striking and touching.

‘Modest Mouse’ is a funky track that offers a pop edge. It opens with gentle strings and soon has a vibrant funk riff bringing the song to life. The track reflects teenage romance and the fun of youth. The lyrics are stories and each line draws a picture of a life we can all relate to. ‘Coal Miner (I Belong With You)’ is a beautiful song that really pulls at the heartstrings. The story telling within the lyrics is what really draws you in. The track has a gorgeous melody and poignant vocals. This is storytelling-folk at its best. ‘I Won’t Wait’ closes the E.P on a high. Beginning with soft guitar plucks and gentle piano keys, the song is the ballad of the album. Soft vocals and heart rendering lyrics give the song a natural innocence that is very honest.

Geometrist’s are all about fusion; about the bringing together of genres and styles to create new and perfectly combined elements. Diverse and full of exciting twists and turns along the way ‘Geometrist E.P’ is as modern as it is complex, perfect for any summer playlist.

Bio

Geometrist came to fruition in the sweaty depths of a booze-soaked basement in Allston, MA. The self-proclaimed weird district of Boston served to be the perfect home for Geometrist to begin shaping their sound in late 2012. Though many of the bands members singer/ guitarist Jake Capistran, guitarist Mike Larsen, bassist Zack Renschler, and key-tickler Max Rogers had played together at University in various capacities, Geometrists current form was cemented with the addition of Capistrans life-long friend and drummer, Nick Brozek.

Often categorized as indie or alternative rock, Geometrists folk influence is also undeniable in its appreciation for melody and storytelling. The bands sound is the product of diverse musical tastes, infused along each step in its recipe for song creation. Each song on the bands debut Geometrist EP - released April, 2013 - is the fully-fleshed version of a singer-songwriter style tune first strummed by Capistran in 2012. With each practice and performance, the members of Geometrist sought to inject their personal strengths and tweak song structures, evolving the once-simple folk songs into a richer body of music. The EP is bursting with themes of love and romanticized heartache, while celebrating forward movement, wide-eyed hope, and a tis better to have loved and lost.. mentality.
