RALEIGH (Canada) – https://raleigh.bandcamp.com/
Unafraid of both straight-up hooks and experimental song structure, RALEIGH is a band carving their own space in new music. Thoughtful refrains are woven by vocals, cello, and guitar, with drums and bass treading the groove together. It is indie rock, damaged by art, delicate and exposed but intimately pointed, connectivity through song.
“It’s experimental without being inaccessible, challenging while still being warm and welcoming for those who seek a little adventure with their melodiousness. In other words, a trip worth taking.” – TheYYScene
“There’s no denying the poise and discipline with which Raleigh struts its mysterious stuff” – Toronto Star
“Raleigh has a wonderfully raw sound that sets their music apart from many other indie artists. The lyrics resonate over skillfully crafted musical accompaniment, allowing the power of the words to shine through.” – LA Music Critic
“Breezy pop that moved with spectacular fluidity… their performance took on a loose, improvisatory feel, guided by cello, bass, and drums… intricate and danceable songs. Raleigh are one of the city’s best young groups.” – Exclaim
“Imaginative lyrics and unabashed pop hooks” – Music Savage
“Abundance of dude/ lady duets, off kilter pop, and reckless abandon for traditions… they never detract from the core ideals of strong songwriting and tenable music. It’s the best of both worlds.” – Music OMH UK
“Both richly textured and propulsive, a soundscape with rounded corners and jagged edges. Just when you think they’ve veered into dreamy-pop territory, the band shifts gears and delivers big, drum heavy hooks that make it hard to sit still.” – Avenue Magazine
“Raleigh’s wonderfully titled Sun Grenades & Grenadine Skies, with its abundance of dude/lady vocal duets, off-kilter pop and reckless abandon for traditional folk setups… While things may get kooky, they never detract from the core ideals of strong songwriting and tenable music; this isn’t some self-indulgent pet project intent on alienating, this is a collection of well-constructed ditties that happen to plunge into new territories. It’s the best of both worlds.” – Music OMH UK
“Unlike so many bands that prefer a softer voice and hushed tones, the results speak volumes.” – the Calgary Herald
“Raleigh, create beautifully layered songs that are as delicate as they are sophisticated. Tight vocal harmonies interweave and counterpoint with instrumental arrangements that sound far larger than their lineup might indicate. Geiger and Anaïs’ lyrics are both literate and accessible, creating an entire storybook world where characters are well rounded and familiar, traveling through settings that are all their own. ” – Beatroute Magazine
