The four members of Maps & Atlases are Dave Davison / guitar and vocals, Erin Elders /guitar, Shiraz Dada / Bass, and Chris Hainey / … (more) drums all met in 2004, while attending art school in Chicago. The bands unique style melds the technicality of progressive music and the idiosyncrasies of Art Rock into a fascinating and oddly accessible sound all their own. They gained a sizable local following through playing many shows around nearby Midwest states, as well as many underground basement shows in Chicago with similarly minded acts like Russian Circles, Matt & Kim, Karma with a K, and Rahim. Much attention was attributed to each member’s dynamic playing styles, notably Hainey’s impressively athletic drumming. The group was also featured in a Pabst Blue Ribbon advertisement in The Onion
Known for their virtuosic musical ability, Maps & Atlases write pop songs with a magnificent aptitude for texture and a distinctive blend of both the intricate and organic. While 2007’s Tree, Swallows, Houses showcases the bands more technical side, their offering You And Me And The Mountain, presents more earthly and digestible songs that has earned comparisons to TV On The Radio, Deerhoof, CAN, and even Prince.
