A soundtrack to the meaningless of modern living and the technology accompanying it. There’s also a love for electric guitar playing here for certain, as showcased in the lengthy interludes. But, beyond that Rough//Shapes are all about deconstructing rock n roll. A real art-rock guerilla unit.
With that being said, I remember what a friend told me about moving from Canada (the home of Rough//Shapes) back to his Eastern European place of birth. “Major downgrade,” he claimed, and I think inside this group’s heart of hearts they know what that means.
