ABOUT THE ROOTOPS
Committed to providing goodtime grooves for serious listeners, The Rooftops have been creating uplifting, intelligent dance-floors for 15 years. Frontman Euan Gray now lives in Cambodia but the distance has not held the band back from performing or recording, with the band releasing their fifth album early in 2019. The new record, Feels Like Science, presents more of their classic soulful, storytelling songs alongside epic dance-floor jams and heart-stopping melodies. It is their most mature record to date - a collection that speaks to the emotional landscape of distance, and how it ultimate brings people back together.
FEELS LIKE SCIENCE
Feels Like Science is The Rooftops' most mature record to date, featuring a collection of songs that speak to the emotional landscape of distance; geographically, within relationships, and across generations.
THINK OF ME LAST
Sometimes, you need to be good to others in order to look after yourself. In this single release, The Rooftops go a little bit acoustic, except for the 100 piece choir at the end!
EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE
When Euan announced he was moving to Cambodia, it could have marked the end of the band. Instead, they made an album to capture their well-travelled but not-yet-recorded songs in the final weeks before he left.
A HUNDRED DIFFERENT LIVES
The Rooftops recorded this album in Sydney with producer, vocal legend and The Voice runner-up, Darren Percival. It is full of hope, energy and spirit - a true adventure into possibility.
At its essence, The Rooftops are a bunch of jazz musicians, as comfortable with extended solos and complex chords as they are at simple, deeply-felt melodies and grooves. This album is the band at their stripped-back best.
Though the band has come a long way since their first album, it is still a goldmine of creativity. It's vulnerable and honest, surprisingly slick, and full of songs the crowds still love.
