Raccoon Tour is the musical brainchild of Boise, Idaho native Nate Burr. Combining elements of nostalgia, fantasy, and mischief, Raccoon Tour is setting out to create a unique world for listeners to explore. Burr mixes and matches influences ranging from indie, punk, emo, electronic, skramz, and pop while writing music exclusively on a 4 string ukulele and iPad to jot down ideas. Raccoon Tour’s music is full of warm callbacks to childhood and explorations of religion, with upbeat and catchy melodies to catch one’s attention while slipping dark and introspective lyrics into the picture.
Their debut album, The Dentonweaver, is set to be a whirlwind adventure through the tribulations of childhood, class consciousness, responsibility, and ultimately death. Being engineered and produced by Brett Romnes (Lincoln, I Am The Avalanche, and The Front Bottoms) and conceptualized throughout Burr’s high school years, The Dentonweaver will be as ambitious as it is varied in sound. The record is due to be released in early 2021 through I Surrender Records.
