NORTH of AMERICA present an emotive brand of new music that both recognizes and expands upon the canons and clichés of a decade of guitar based indie rock. While blending the atonal guitar work of early era Chapel Hill bands with the math and dynamics of Chicago’s more progressive sound, NORTH of AMERICA find their anchor in the urgency and sincerity of the DC influenced scene, dropping indie rock’s typical tongue-in-cheek smarminess in favour of a more intelligent and serious approach. All of this is filtered through a well-developed sense of structure and arrangement, preventing the songs from becoming mere exercises in musical athleticism and allowing for the occasional foray into hook-laden pop song delivery.
