A Forest Of Polarity

Four of my friends, Drew, Mark, Jonny, and Wendelin, have a band called Rooftops. I have seen them put on plenty of fantastic shows, but witnessed a particularly killer one tonight.

Rooftops is a math-rock band with post-rock tendencies, and there songs remind me very much of classical compositions in arrangement and performance. Like a violin suite transposed onto three guitars, the songs weave from section to section and use motif as a means of familiarity rather than a recurring chorus. It's refreshing, and on repeat listens the hooks will reveal themselves in really elegant ways.
