Anatomy

Anatomy is an appealing, enjoyable modern rock act that combines smooth alto vocals and striking use of harmony with clean electric guitar and well-done drumming. While they don't do much that is terribly new or earthshaking, their songs are all well-produced and quite catchy, with good guitar hooks.

I liked that their compositions have a bit more meat to them than your average indie rock band. Their guitar tracks are layered, creating a dreamy postrock haze of guitar textures, and I was impressed to notice that many of their numbers utilize an ABC format, rather than the typical ABA format of most rock. Intelligent segues from their drummer make the songs flow smoothly from section to section. I wouldn't call them prog, but they definitely have some mild prog influences that increased their musical appeal without becoming pretentious.

All in all, Anatomy is a solid rock group, producing great songs that wriggle into one's ear. There's little about them that stands out dramatically at first listen, but the whole of their songs come together to make for a solid band that grew on me with every repeat. Fans of good indie pop should definitely check them out.
