"All too often in this age of indie collectives, you get bombarded with songs steeped in layers so thick the melody and intricacies are lost, along with any spontaneity. The desire for epic sounds leads overproduction and a polish that takes away the heart of the songs or a muddled combination that makes it impossible to feel your way through.

Thankfully, when it comes to The Geese - a folk collective from New Brunswick that recently moved to Vancouver and changed their name from The Family Band - the songs on their EP are full of ramshackle and creativity. Each of the five songs are loosely held together by the shared members but almost nothing else." -HEROHILL.COM

The Geese are a collection of talented songwriters and instrumentalists intent on making the best of each other's songs, helping them meet their full potential. From guitar to cello, from accordion to melodious vocals, from electric guitar to drums, the Geese come together with a bang.
