MAPS & ATLASES
Davison, Shiraz Dada (bass), Chris Hainey (drums), and Erin Elders (guitar) all met as students at Columbia College in Chicago. The band spent two years touring behind its two EPs - both of which were recorded by Dada. On both, Maps & Atlases honed a sound that combined the tightly wound technical proficiency of Don Caballero and Hella but with songwriting, arrangements, and harmonies that aimed for sky rather than gut.
Maps & Atlases return to Europe in support of their sophomore album ‘Beware And Be Grateful’ which is due for release on 16th April. Musically, ‘Beware And Be Grateful’ is a mature progression for the band, who started life being labelled as ‘math-rock’, and have now found themselves writing intelligent pop music. The band are known for putting on a terrific live performance, which often ends in an intimate acoustic set for any fans who don’t rush off after the last song.
