405tv Session: Maps & Atlases
Chicago quartet Maps & Atlases have had somewhat of a whirlwind few years since the release of debut album Perch Patchwork in 2010, what with three LP releases in 22 months and a hell of lot of touring.
Prior to their London show on their UK tour recently, we filmed a session with vocalist/guitarist Dave Davison of lead single 'Fever' from their most recent 2012 album Beware and Be Grateful. Davison performed a stripped-back version of the track in a stripped-back near empty Camden Market under glowing street light - watch the infectious indie-stroke-math rock number here.
