Topographies (US)

Topographies is a post-punk group based in San Francisco and Los Angeles and formed in 2018 by Justin Oronos, Jeremie Ruest, and Gray Tolhurst. The band draws from coldwave and post punk groups like Asylum Party, New Order, and the Chameleons while also fusing elements of industrial, EBM, and shoegaze into a sound that is at once nostalgic and contemporary. The group has released two 7” singles, two EPs and one LP through independent labels Sonic Cathedral, DREAM, and Funeral Party. A second LP entitled “Interior Spring” is due early 2024 from San Francisco label Dark Entries known for releases by Severed Heads, Lives of Angels and countless other seminal acts of the 80s, 90s and contemporary post punk and electronic underground. The group has toured nationally, most recently with Portland’s Soft Kill on a 6-week national tour which included sold out shows in Los Angeles, Portland and New York. They have also shared bills with The Chills, Odonis Odonis, and The Twilight Sad.
