At first blush, the music produced by Denton, Texas, trio Pageantry feels like dreamy yet hazy pop. But it doesn't take long for complicated elements like intricately arranged drum lines and odd time signatures to add new wrinkles, creating a sound the band calls "pop-gaze" (somewhere between pop, shoegaze and math rock). Pageantry's debut EP, 2013's Friends of the Year, is an intoxicating combination of halcyon synths, tension-wrought rhythms and arresting falsetto vocals by Roy Robertson that tickles the brain and pierces the heart. The band is currently finishing up its first full-length, which has no official release date yet; in the meantime, visit Pageantry's Bandcamp to listen to the delicate, atmospheric single "Spine," released in October.
