Brooklyn-based punk/folk/pop quartet Early Riser, led by singer/songwriter Kiri Oliver and cellist/vocalist Heidi Vanderlee, has a knack for taking the ups and downs of everyday life and granting them a mythic, otherworldly quality. Longtime music bookers for The Chris Gethard Show, Oliver and Vanderlee aren’t afraid to do things a little differently, crafting pop songs that are heavy on strings and vocal harmonies, while harnessing a manic energy somewhere between the Weakerthans and the Mountain Goats. Their debut album Currents (Anchorless/A-F Records) veers effortlessly from light to dark and back to light, touching on themes of letting go, moving on, and surrendering to the flow.
