Band Spotlight: Miss Geo
Producers and musicians Pascaline Mary and Abby Heredia team up to form Miss Geo, crafting synth heavy electro-pop with a sense of urgency and strong lyrical content giving depth to the highly danceable beats. Today the Boston duo release “Sea In Between,” a melodic, synth happy track that serves as the first single to the group’s upcoming debut album Connection which will arrive Sept. 16.
WINDUP: What’s the writing dynamic like between the two of you?
MISS GEO: One of us usually comes up with an idea. Then we play and bounce them off each other until it becomes something that we’re both interested in..something exciting.
You’re releasing the single “Sea In Between” today, what inspired that song?
The song is based on the feeling of moving to a new country and trying to find balance between your old and new home. Paz moved to the United States from Paris, so in her case there really is a “Sea In Between” her past and present life.
How important is telling a meaningful story with your music?
More often than not it plays a role in our songs. Stories help give another layer of meaning to the sounds.
How does “Sea In Between” fit in to your guys’ debut album as a whole?
Our upcoming album Connection is a concept album, each song representing an emotion. “Sea In Between” is about hope. The lyrics in the chorus are “We’re love and lust and bones, we’re all the places we could go” At certain points in our lives we’ve all searched for a place to belong, to call home.
Do you guys find yourself looking to past musical eras or today’s music more for inspiration?
Our inspiration tends to be a mixture of today’s music (2000’s era) and music from disco/New Wave from the 1980’s.
In what ways did you guys look to build off your two previously released EP’s with the upcoming Connection?
Connection is the album that’s become a fusion point for the band. In our previous EP’s the band was getting to know each other. We found our different writing skills became more symbiotic this time around.
What do you hope people are able to take away from the new album?
We hope we can evoke feelings from the listener. It can be interpreted in anyway really. And it would be nice if we could offer some form of comfort and release, even for a short while with the songs.
How do you feel your international roots have affected your sound?
It has affected the album in the writing process, mostly because the songs represent different feelings we have, including sadness and nostalgia when being separated from our country. We tried to explore a range of emotions when giving birth to the songs. Our cultural upbringings also affect our different approaches in style. We like how they come together.
