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 veers effortlessly from light to dark and back to light, touching on themes of letting go, moving on, and surrendering to the flow.
