Atmospheric indie pop group, 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 in Australia, and upon returning to their hometown of Auckland the pair began to write music together. During a yearlong trip from Argentina to Colombia, the duo developed their sound by writing and playing shows along the way. Armed with a portable recorder and two old acoustic guitars purchased from an antique store in Buenos Aires, the pair set off on their odyssey and began writing and recording the first fragments of new songs.
As the transient nature of their year unfolded, lyrical themes of movement, displacement and strange encounters began to rise to the surface. The demos turned into fully formed songs the duo would perform along the way, including slightly awkward Spanish language live to air radio performances, and various gigs throughout Peru and into Colombia.
