POP ROCK | Twenty One Pilots


Typically, a band either stands out because it is good or it breaks from the norm. In Twenty One Pilots' case, it's both. The schizophrenic pop group — and yes, that is actually a real subgenre of pop — uses a combination of keyboards, synthesizers and drums along with lyrics written in a poetic fashion. It's a treat to hear the singer — well, he's more like spoken word — break into a rap since his style, much like the group itself, just drips with uniqueness. Combine it with electronica and it's easy to see the wide appeal the schizoid-pop duo carries.

Twenty One Pilots plays with MisterWives and Vinyl Theatre on Wednesday, September 10, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. $23-$25.;
