Rooftop Runners are brothers Benedikt and Tobias MacIsaac, they hail from Berlin originally but are now based in Western Canada. 2012 saw them release their debut EP We Are Here. 2013 promises to be a year of successful touring and new releases. Rooftop Runners are building upon recent successes which saw them tour the UK, Switzerland and Germany, including a performance at Club NME. The indie duo put on great live performances and the energy of their live act probably stems from the fact that Benedikt is an accomplished choreographer and Tobias is a dance professional.
Their debut LP is in post-production right now and promises to make an impact. Rooftop Runners recently shot a new video for their track Energize which you can check out below. The song is reminiscent of much of xx’s eponymous debut album. Energize is a downtempo, gritty track that draws the listener in with its hypnotic bassline. Benedikt directed the video himself and it is definitely worth a watch. Further listening is available of the band’s Soundcloud site.
