With Drew Fitchette, Mark Detrick, and Jonathan McIntyre on guitars and Wendelin Wohlgemuth on drums, Rooftops craft intricate, mathy pop rock with dense counterpoint and sparse vocals. However, the band’s tapped notes, and complex, cross accentuated rhythms are balanced by emotive melodies and moments of delicate beauty.
With A Forest of Polarity, Washington post-rock act Rooftops show a knack for shimmering guitar parts, epic passages and even a dash of funky aspirations. Like Minus the Bear, the group focuses its progressive technicality into tighter arrangements. While Rooftops never get as dance-centric as MtB-especially if you've heard OMNI-there's still a lightness to the song structures that sell them, even if the band usually stays away from choruses, or vocals in general. The first half or so of the album could be seen as a suite.
