ROCK | Pianos Become The Teeth


Pianos Become The Teeth is a lush, post-rock band from Baltimore that's done a lot with its sound over the years, so it's a little hard to pin these guys down. Probably the most noticeable evolution over the seven years the band has been putting out music is lead singer, Kyle Durfey's vocal style. What began as throat-gutting screams on earlier works, like "I'll Be Damned" (2011) — which helped plant the band in a melodic hardcore category — has softened into a clear, heartfelt style. The rock instrumentation has followed suit. There's still a weight and depth, but it comes now more from raw emotion instead of full distortion. The 5-piece signed with Epitaph Records and is touring off its recent album, 2014's "Keep You." Loma Prieta and Gates also play.

Pianos Become The Teeth performs Sunday, April 19, at the California Brew Haus, 402 West Ridge Road. 6:30 p.m. $13-$15.;
