We’ve been tracking Mae frontman Dave Elkins’ solo project Schematic since word came out back in November that it was even a thing. One successful Kickstarter project and a couple of weeks spent in the studio later and now we can hear the sonic fruits of Elkins’ effort.
Color (n.) Inside The Lines won’t officially come out until tomorrow but Elkins teamed up with Idobi and the pair were generous enough to put the whole thing up on Soundcloud for streaming ahead of its release.
The debut from Schematic is a celebration of erudite melodicism and anthemic alternative rock with a distinctly indie bend. There are little nods to late 90s/early Aughts indie/emo along with the occasional electronic flourish here and there. Intrigued? You can check out the whole thing after the jump.
