Rooftops

In the far north­west cor­ner of Wash­ing­ton State is the bay­side city of Belling­ham, the home of Rooftops. With Drew Fitch­ette, Mark Det­rick, and Jonathan McIn­tyre on gui­tars and Wen­delin Wohlge­muth on Drums, Rooftops craft intri­cate, mathy pop rock with retic­u­lar instru­men­ta­tion and sparse vocals.

Formed in the early sum­mer of 2007, Drew, Mark and Wen­delin set out with the uni­fy­ing goal of writ­ing music that they enjoyed play­ing, as well as lis­ten­ing to. As the band con­tin­ued to hone their sound, they even­tu­ally found th ...read more

In the far north­west cor­ner of Wash­ing­ton State is the bay­side city of Belling­ham, the home of Rooftops. With Drew Fitch­ette, Mark Det­rick, and Jonathan McIn­tyre on gui­tars and Wen­delin Wohlge­muth on Drums, Rooftops craft intri­cate, mathy pop rock with retic­u­lar instru­men­ta­tion and sparse vocals.

Formed in the early sum­mer of 2007, Drew, Mark and Wen­delin set out with the uni­fy­ing goal of writ­ing music that they enjoyed play­ing, as well as lis­ten­ing to. As the band con­tin­ued to hone their sound, they even­tu­ally found their miss­ing piece in long­time friend Jonathan McIn­tyre in the sum­mer of 2008. With the addi­tion of Jonathan, the band added a third gui­tar and awoke three accom­pa­ny­ing voices, cement­ing their evo­lu­tion from instru­men­tal move­ment to song.

No strangers to the NW under­ground music scene, the mem­bers of Rooftops spent their for­ma­tive years play­ing in region­ally influ­en­tial bands such as In Praise of Folly, Lands Far­ther East, Snow Cuts Glass, and Treasures.

Their debut full length album, A For­est Of Polar­ity, expands on the bands already impres­sive sound by adding lay­ers of acoustic gui­tars, horns, strings and per­cus­sion. The result­ing arrange­ment cre­at­ing a impres­sive sound that syn­er­gizes post rock and math rock into some­thing new. Released in Novem­ber 2009 by Click­pop Records – this record is an auda­cious debut for an excit­ing new band. « hide
