When performing, he wears a distinct outfit that includes mechanical wings, face paint and a headdress that resembles a native American war bonnet.[1][8][9][10][11] He claims that the outfit is meant to be memorable and garner attention to his music.[12]

Musical career[edit]

Giese released an EP titled Crazy Manic Love, which includes a song of the same name.[13]

His debut album, Yalta, was released in 2015.[14][15]

He has collaborated with musician BryanStars on a cover of Bring Me the Horizon's "Follow You".[16] He released a music video for his song "Villain", which served as the second track on his EP, Empress.[17]

Giese embarked on the Empress Tour, spanning the southern and midwest United States. Hotel Books and The Funeral Portrait served as support. The tour then went overseas to the United Kingdom and Europe, with One-Eyed Doll.

In 2018, Social Repose's cover of "You Should See Me in a Crown" was featured on Glamour magazine's YouTube channel where it was watched by Billie Eilish.[18] Eilish complimented him on his talent and regarded the video as "impressive".[19]
