The Paths / Press

“The Paths, formerly known as Rospoem, have announced that they will be performing at South By Southwest, also known as SXSW, on March 14. They will be taking the stage at noon." ”

“The final band to perform was called The Paths (formerly known as Rospoem). They are a five-piece band featuring Riley Bean on drums, Cole Corey on guitar and vocals, Ron Thieleman on bass, Michael Skib on keys, percussion and backup vocals, Matias Sturla on guitar, as well as Rob Barger, the band's personal sound engineer. Hailing from Ann Arbor, except for Matias, who is originally from Buenos Aires, the band cites influences ranging from Radiohead and Bon Iver to The Antlers and Pink Floyd. One of their songs was prefaced by the entire band babbling into microphones simultaneously, creating an eerie, multi-layered vocal collage into which the song was then introduced. The Paths is a very dramatic band with sad undertones that transform into uplifting high-energy jams. They are very good at building upon a theme until their songs reach a climactic, high energy, frenetic pace, all the while being held together by Cole Corey's spacey, Thom Yorke-esque vocals.”
