Geese and PACKS to perform at No Fun in Troy on October 4th
TROY: Indie punk rock band Geese is set to take the stage on October 4th at No Fun in Troy. Introduced to the public in 2021 after the release of their album Projector, sonically Geese had a very indie rock sound going on. The band is composed of vocalist Cameron Winter, guitarists Gus Green and Foster Hudson, bassist Dom DiGesu, and drummer Max Bassin. The band formed in 2016 and practiced and recorded material in the basement of Max Bassin’s home. Projector had a very juvenile but stereotypical sound circulating within the album, which is actually the complete opposite sound that we received from the band after the release of their most current album. Geese has undergone a profound transformation. Their latest album, 3D Country, marks the evolution of the band adventurously redefining their musical identity.
In recent live performances, Geese has changed their onstage demeanor and appear to have a more explosive but unpredictable vibe. This change wasn’t merely a contrast to their previous work on “Projector” but was foreshadowing a deeper narrative. Recognizing that they had moved beyond their teenage basement experimental era and were now crafting music for a broader, more mature audience, Geese felt empowered to switch their aesthetic up. Guitarist Gus Green reflects on the differences between creating their first album and creating their most recent as he states, “When we were writing Projector, it was about narrowing the scope, trying to do more with less… when we started writing for 3D Country, we were trying to do a lot more and seeing what worked and what didn’t.”
While writing 3D Country, vocalist Cameron Winter was obsessed with the concept of “modern doom.” Winter alludes to the point that we go on with our everyday lives as alarmingly catastrophic events are taking place at the same time. This concept was the driving force for this album and, ultimately, the new sound of Geese. With the release of 3D Country, the band has single-handedly transformed sonically and offers their listeners to join them on this unpredictable journey. With a new album coming out this October, fans are excited to see where Geese will bring us next.
The band “Packs” will serve as the supporting act for Geese. Band leader Madeline Link combines an indie rock sound with country-rooted influences. Packs has released a total of four albums, all a bit different than the last. In their most recent album, Crispy Crunchy Nothing, the band has a more exploratory dynamic going on, containing relaxed, warm vocals.
