Math rock can be defined as a rhythmically complex, guitar-based style of experimental rock rich with plenty of syncopation and meticulously crafted polyrhythms. Though you may not be able to lump A Love Like Pi's latest dancy release "Till I Die," as ~math rock~ none would be the wiser. The group opens up their song reciting pi to the twelfth-decibel point before exploding into an infectious blend of electronic sounds and driving guitar riffs. This is their third radio release off their debut album III, which spans a narrative of the three parts of life: boy, man, and death. It's the first track to be released that detours away from their melancholic and soulful blend of low-tempo electro-pop with brooding melodies. It is an upbeat energetic serving of rock meets pop that is somewhere between the spectrum of Head Automatica and Robert DeLong. The lyrics are equal parts absurd and introspective, spanning from math tutorial, party anthem, and bible study (shoutout Pastor Wade.) It's an intriguing turn that has us intrigued to see the rest of their narrative album unfold. Listen to the song below and let us know what you think.
