Keeper started as the bedroom recording project of Marissa Lorusso. After she self-released an EP called Fawn in 2015, she was joined by Matt Lewicki on synth and Sam Piercy on guitar. Since then, they have played along the east coast with bands like Eskimeaux, Japanese Breakfast, Horse Jumper of Love, and Florist.

Keeper's music is built from a desire to translate big moods and small moments into guitar-driven indie rock. Salting, Keeper's first EP as a full band, was recorded over a weekend at Marissa’s childhood home. For this release, the band focused on experimenting with an expanded sound; as a result, its four songs maintain the intimacy of the early bedroom recordings while introducing new sonic textures.
