"THE YOUNG MATHS"

"Behind every great song is a great groove. “Beat It,” “Soft Pyramids,” and “You Wanted a Hit” bring a deep appreciation of rhythm to the table, which is why people are dancing on top of it.

Texas’ the Young Maths care about percussion, too. They don’t beat you over the head with it, but it does play a vital role in “Fingered On the Dance Floor.” It’s the final track to their new EP Thank You, Goodnight! We Are…, and sports some nimble musicianship. Tight guitar licks interlock like Tetris blocks with an off-kilter bassline. The fevered vocals and hectic ending give the appearance of chaos, but this track fails to derail–not even for a second. Call it a controlled demolition.
Fans of Q and Not U, Maps and Atlases, and the Dismemberment plan have an eighty percent chance of getting down." - Anthony Fantano / theneedledrop.com

Bio

Although the Young Maths started off as bedroom project for songwriter Robert Godinez, the band that eventually formed shares little to no sound aesthetic with other contemporary bedroom buzz acts. Aside from the fact that Godinez was producing funk and dance punk tracks on his own, what sets the Young Maths apart is the fact the rest of the band as a whole, consisting of drummer JP Chapa, bassist Manny Monetjano, and guitarist Patrick Garcia, helped cultivate the band's current sound through their attempts to capture a live presentation of Godinez's recordings. They couldn't do it - and really, it was a blessing. Replacing click tracks and drum samples with solid, organic drums and bass pulled the band away from their thin, lo-fi, digitized aesthetic and into a realm of choppy, jangling dance-punk created by four minds burning and challenging one another to write as a collective unit seeking new musical light and direction.

The Young Maths have since recorded their first Daytrotter.com session in January of 2011, received praise from SPIN editor Doug Brod before opening up for indie rockers Miniature Tigers, Maps & Atlases, Monotonix, White Rabbits, and Dawes. In May of 2010 the band recorded and released their first EP, "Thank You, Goodnight! We are…", garnering strong internet buzz from the austinist.com, the AV Club, Anthony Fantano of theneedledrop.com, Steph Lund of forthebeat.com, a feature on motherboard.tv, austinvida.com, nitesblog.com, and many other nationally recognized media sites.

The band's first LP, "ERRORRS," was self-released in August of 2011, and the band toured the remainder of the year in support of its release. The Young Maths have since been featured in MTV Hive, Alternative Press, SYFFAL.com, The Blue Indian, theneedledrop.com, and more. After their Daytrotter session was released in January of 2012, the band took the rest of the year off from touring, emerging to play regional shows in Texas again in early 2013.

While taking a year and a half off would discourage most bands, the time has not been wasted. Godinez has spent the time compiling several albums worth of material, and the Young Maths are set to record a second LP, tentatively titled "Quiet," in October of 2013.
