Mute Math is one of the best bands out there today
I know you stay true when my world is false / everything around’s breaking down to chaos
Even after a year and a half of following Mute Math, it still feels like I know a huge secret. People still ask, "what math?" You haven't heard of the electronic, ambient, prog rock, jazz and classically influenced rock quartet making headway through the music industry with a sound that resembles a mix of Sting, Radiohead, Mars Volta, Einstürzende Neubauten and Chick Corea?
When you step out of a contract with Warner Bros. and they want you back, you know you're better than good, your going to be huge. By next summer, Mute Math could easily be a group contending for a Hollywood Bowl size gig. With their second single "Noticed" due out later this year, the debut single "Typical" (see video on the right or live version on Jimmy Kimmel from 9/19/07) is still energetically fresh and popular. If you got introduced to them via the Transformers theme song from this summer and didn't like it, give them a second try. While the musical composition was the usual Mute Math, it was a bit lame -- lyrics about Transformers will be only popular if it is making fun of the Michael Bay blockbuster.
