As Art Contest, Coleman Monroe (guitar) & Garrett Burke (drums) produce South Carolina’s most spastic, high-energy, blood-spilling, rock music – a messy, indescribable genre that has been referred to as “probability and statistics rock” in the grand tradition of such indie luminaries as Battles, Ratatat, and Deerhoof. A relentless blend of organic and electronic composition, the duo’s live experience channels the volume, energy and intricacy of a ten-piece auditory assault.
On January 17th, 2014, the band released their debut LP, Math Major. On Art Contest’s upcoming full-length album, Two Songs, the band hopes to reinvent the concept of math rock and technical music, stylistically and spiritually.
