As The Cartographers, Laura Proenza and Thomas Mauler suspend dreamy, heartfelt vocal melodies over a shimmering blend of pulsing synthesizers and angular, floating electro-guitars. Crisp drum beats and driving bass lines keep the whole car moving. The Cartographers claim to have only 10 influences: Rome, electricity, love, New York, geography, distance, Los Angeles, heartbeats, San Francisco, and cars. In songs like Golden Gates, Panasonic, and Expensive Drinks, those influences are channeled to create a fresh and strikingly original sound that ranges from dark to cautiously optimistic to hopeful. Comparisons could include: Arcade Fire, M83, New Order, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai, Au Revoir Simone, and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.
