Editorial Review

Fergus & Geronimo is a band to keep an eye on. Coming from Denton, Tex., and armed with a well-informed, effortless indie-pop sound, the group recently signed to Hardly Art, after a handful of releases on labels such as Tic Tac Totally, Transparent and Woodsist. It's an impressive run for a band that's only been around for a couple years and started out as a side project. The group has more than a few moves in its arsenal, so don't always expect one song to sound like the next - maybe a little mod-pop followed by doo-wop-soul - but expect it to easily keep your attention. Fergus & Geronimo open for Archivists at the Velvet Lounge.
