Math rock is a style of indie rock that emerged in the late 1980s in the United States, influenced by progressive rock bands such as King Crimson and 20th-century minimal music composers such as Steve Reich. Math rock is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), counterpoint, odd time signatures, angular melodies, and extended, often dissonant, chords. It bears similarities to post-rock.
