Survivors is the first full-length solo album by Baltimore music veteran and former/founding Lower Dens member Geoff Graham. Thematically, the album is inspired by the survival of trauma, the transformation that must take place in its wake, and the potential of life to continue and thrive in the most dire circumstances. Sonically, Graham continues to explore the intersection of synth pop and noise. Spaced-out dreamscapes give way to urgent blast beats reminiscent of punk dance parties. Grounding the various musical strands are Graham’s vocals, angelic and vulnerable, as he steps confidently out of the roles of instrumentalist and background vocalist to songwriter and front person. Intimate and psychological, sonorous and meditative, Julee Cruise meets Future Islands. Ideal for a late night drive, Survivors is Graham’s most personal work to date.
