The Geeks from Quezon City in the Philippines is the retro-indie quartet of Kevin Tedd Felisco (Guitar), Mags Borbon (Bass), Brian Sangco (Drums) and Jam Lorenzo (Guitar / Vocals).
Pitching their notes from the thinnest key on the six string, The Geeks take the audience on a journey of sound which recollects of the warmth of vinyl four track recordings, even in digital format. Their delivery finds the audience reaching for a skinny tie to accompany the mood. There is a luxuriant cosseted feeling that breezes into the room, like a warm summer sunset.
Whilst firmly with one foot in the ’60s, The Geeks don’t sound like a pastiche of sounds heard before, as they are able to take a style and invest it within a more focussed indie rock setting, giving the music a currency and relevance for the ’10s. The interspersing of individual notes and chords allows the quartet to provide easy to engage tracks with angles of intrigue, raising the banner from disposable pieces, to numbers that you want to come back to hear again.
Well worth adding to the ‘relax with this’ playlist.
