Comprised of Abby (vocals and guitar) and Paz (backing vocals and synths), the duo of Miss Geo can trace their formation to a chance meeting at a Boston area Apple Store. As it turns out, Paz, who was born and raised in Paris had just moved to Boston and Abby, who is from Newport, RI was in town to play an acoustic set. The duo quickly bonded over mutually shared interests, including New Order, MGMT, Ladytron, Blondie and others, and began to jam together. Liking the results, both Abby and Paz started self-recording and self-producing their material in their homes. 

Their first single “Waves” was praised by FILTER Magazine and MidPoint Music Festival for a sound that is comprised of layers of synths, bouncy beats and breathy vocals singing introspective vocals – that is naturally reminiscent of many of the duo’s influences. And as a result, they’ve started to build up a regional profile as they’ve toured the Northeast, opened for The Blow and Lovers and have played at the Together Festival and (the aforementioned) Cincinnati’s MidPoint Music Festival. Their latest single “Mouse on the Moon” will most likely cement the duo’s reputation for crafting a chilly and downtempo electro pop that owes as much of a debt to modern production and recording techniques as it does to 80s synth pop – thanks to the fact that shimmering synth are paired with an overall moody, introspective nature.
