SONGBROKER SONG OF THE DAY : THE MAP ROOM - ELASTIC TONGUE
The Map Room combine their love for well-constructed pop songs and embellished instrumentation with themes of displacement and motion inspired in part by their travels through South America.
Brendon Morrow and Simon Gooding met while studying audio engineering where the pair began to write music together. During a year-long trip from Argentina to Colombia, the duo developed their sound by writing and playing shows along the way.
These songs evolved into a highly acclaimed self titled album, the band having crafted a sound which reaches from solo acoustic guitar to full band dynamics, rich with synthesizers, piano and electric guitar.
'Elastic Tongue' is a great example of the band's ability to create beautifully constructed wistful songs with great dynamics, exquisite production and an evocative sound.
