Chicago four-piece Maps & Atlases has a history of genre experimentation, beginning its career in the aggressive screamo vein back in 2004, when the band members met at art school in Chicago. This leaning shifted over the years to a consistent production of math rock-driven tunes, then, to the surprise of fans, a folk-influenced pop. While the band still maintains a subtle undertone of math rock tendencies with its complex guitar riffs, Maps & Atlases has become known, and critically acclaimed, for its ability to produce well written pop anthems.
