Life Size Maps Upcoming Breakthrough Album

Synth pop group Life Size Maps is releasing their first self titled LP on April 7th. Life Size Maps introduces themselves with a powerful electronic pop record with clever and intricate mixing. Chiptune (aka 8-bit music) influences as well as driving percussion is seen weaving its way through the tracks. The album is a fantastic listen, it caries catchy almost hypnotic melodies without becoming monotonous. Life Size Maps is well planned out on every layer and it invites the listener to groove and sing along. 

Inspration for the album came from the rise of the internet age. The album explores what happens with digital life collides with real life. Frontman 

A closer look at single All Been Spent, video below, reveals the bands attention to detail and affinity for dance inducing jams. You can pre-order the album on iTunes and get All Been Spent as well as energetic tune Strange Obsession instantly. The two singles give a glimpse into Life Size Maps unique style, but songs like Past the Veil and Woozy are worth the wait.

Life Size Maps is the work of four Brooklyners: Mike McKeever with vocals, electronics, and guitar, Rob Karpay working synth, Dave Stoecker on bass, and Sean Thornton beating on the drums. The quartet started to gain momentum in the summer of 2011 and have been preforming in well known Brooklyn DIY spaces as well as opening for acts such as Mac Demarco and Oberhofer.
