I AM THE ARCHITECT found their place in student-town Muenster (Germany) in autumn 2007. Having a diverse musical background the four members focussed on a certain goal: Finding a unique musical style that relies on Post-Rock, early ninetees Shoegaze and classical music.
Out of this mixture occur songs that are able to combine contrasts. Complexe structures meet catchy melodies, a melancholic atmosphere opens the door for brute soundwalls. No song sounds like the other but nevertheless an intense closeness emerges, especially live!
The music of I AM THE ARCHITECT is not limited by musical boundaries in order to develop a diverse sound which is enriched by instruments like violin, cello or transverse flute. Together with a distinctive basement of keyboards and synthesizers you’ll hear an impressive musical broadness.
In a relatively short period of time the band became an important part in the music scene of their hometown and the area around it. The discrete songs and the passionate live-shows met with high approval by audiences and critics. A highlight has been the support show for THIS WILL DESTROY YOU in April 2008.
