The latest effort from Roof Beams, Tectonics EP, though true to the band’s storytelling lyrics and ramshackle Americana roots, comes from a new place. Frontman Nathan Robinson wrote these songs during quiet evenings after work, while his daughter was asleep and his wife was at night school. This led to a more thoughtful, reiterative process resulting in thick layers of harmonies using quieter, lower registers.
Along the theme of big life changes, Tectonics is an analysis of long-term relationships, as they move apart or together at an almost imperceptible pace.
