Surrounded by analog synthesizers, step sequencers, and vintage drum machines, Spencer spent the majority of 2018 practically in solitude of his minimal home studio to create his first album. His layered, edgy, wall of sound made it hard to believe it came from a tiny bedroom. In late 2018 he teamed up with fellow Brooklynite Erik Tonnesen of Holy Ghost! to help form a 5 piece band for for the stage. The full line up live consists of Spencer Draeger, Erik Tonnesen on keys, Chris Stein on drums, Matt Leibowitz on bass, and Ian Holubiak on guitar. Channeling themes of the digital modern age and taking a satirical approach to the narcissisms and anxiety illuminated through technology, Draeger’s first songs take sounds of the past to talk about the future.
