"It's a dreamy and melodic endeavour."

More Mutemath More Mutemath

Mutemath's fourth LP takes the listener on a journey through a variety of moods and soundscapes with the use of tempo and atmosphere.

The alt-psych-electronic-rock style can be likened to Empire Of The Sun, Urban Cone or Mini Mansions. It's a dreamy and melodic endeavour, mostly thanks to the vocal capability and keyboard sensibilities of frontman Paul Meany. The drum lines range from intricate hat lines a la Matt Tong to slower paced crawls. Todd Gunnerman's art-rock melodies are also an essential component. A compelling record, Vitals continues to make an impact until the final note.
