405tv Session: Maps & Atlases
Chicago quartet Maps & Atlases have had somewhat of a whirlwind few years since the release of debut album Perch Patchwork in 2010, what with three LP releases in 22 months and a hell of lot of touring.
Prior to their London show on their UK tour recently, we filmed a session with vocalist/guitarist Dave Davison of lead single 'Fever' from their most recent 2012 album Beware and Be Grateful. Davison performed a stripped-back version of the track in a stripped-back near empty Camden Market under glowing street light - watch the infectious indie-stroke-math rock number here.

After leaving the house late and running to miss the bus and then having your gig mate cancel last minute puts you in an awful mood. As do loud mouth Tories on the train and Jason Derulo ring tones and not knowing your way round Shoreditch. But after all of that, the wonderful Dave Davison and Shiraz Dada, guitarist and bassist for the not art rock band Maps & Atlases can really help. We caught up with these two bearded musical savants before their show at Cargo on the 12th. ... (continued) [read more]
