With so many syllables in the band's name, you would totally expect it to be an emo band or purveyors of instrumental post-rock. Although there is a bit of the former in its sound, Chapel Hill's I Was Totally Destroying It is really a power-pop band of the sunny, upbeat ilk often found on the Saddle Creek imprint. Featuring current and former members of Sorry About Dresden, Strunken White and AOK, this band is a bit more straightforward and rocking than the acts it draws from. Fans of the Anniversary will enjoy the interlacing synth and guitar hooks that make Destroying It's sound so charmingly appealing. Live, these guys don't just destroy it — they kill it, too.
