Brooklyn 5-piece Geese have returned with their first new music since their acclaimed 2021 debut ‘Projector.’

Cowboy Nudes” (out now via Partisan Records & Play It Again Sam) sees the band completely overhaul their scrappy post-punk roots into something volcanic, bugged-out, and unpredictable. The track is accompanied by a delightfully dark music video (directed and story by Andy Swartz & Cameron Winter).


Geese frontman Cameron Winter says of the track:

“The song is about life getting better, and more fun, after the end of the world.

When we were doing overdubs I wanted to add something Eastern-sounding on the second verse, so I had our drummer Max bring over this busted up sitar we’d had lying around since high school. I went to buy some new strings at a world music store, and the guy told me one pack was $80. I thought he was kidding so I bought two. He was not; sitar strings aren’t cheap. I didn’t even end up fully restringing it, I just played the one not-broken string. So you better appreciate that goddamn sitar on the second verse.

I’m also proud of the line about falling in love with a tumbleweed.”

Geese’s 2021 debut ‘Projector‘ was one of the most hyped releases of that year, earning the band their TV debut on Colbert, profiles with the NY TimesStereogum Band To WatchConsequence Artist Of The MonthPaste Best Of What’s Next, Rolling Stone called them “indie rock prodigies,” and they toured with Jack White and Spoon.
