Standards - Fruit Island



Led by the exuberant melodies of cross-tapping guitarist Marcos Mena, the duo named standards make ebullient instrumental math-rock whose effervescent riffs teem with enthusiasm for life and music. On the band's debut full-length, Fruit Island, standards deftly retool math-rock's sinister and challenging tendencies into a style that is at once danceable yet still compositionally profound. Drummer Forrest Rice's precise chops ferociously complement Mena's unpredictable melodies, grounding the unusual self-dueling riffs while also respecting the compositional space with tasteful fills and immaculate syncopations.
