Your Music - Rooftop Runners
This weeks Your Music selection comes from a pair of Canadian brothers (not street slang, but siblings) who are living and making music in Germany. Two weeks away from releasing their first EP, lets take a look and listen at Roof Top Runners.
Rooftop Runners is the Indy, Trip-Pop brother duo Benedikt and Tobias MacIsaac out of Berlin, Germany. Born and raised in British Columbia, the two grew up in a musical family complete with professional violinists, singers, flutists and more. Taught by their Dad and Aunts, Ben & Tobi played regularly with family and friends, often Celtic music and traditional Zimbabwe Marimba, later joining a band in high school.
At the age of 14 and 15 their attention turned towards dance and they moved to Toronto to attend the National Ballet School of Canada. This would lead Ben to Holland to study and work in choreography and Tobi to Germany where he found work as a dancer in Hamburg. Neither would lose their interest in music and when the itch grew strong enough they decided to drop everything else, join up in Berlin, and write some songs.
