Say hello to Oliphant, the art/rock trio who manage that wonderful balance between complexity and directness.  The side project of three formally-trained “new music” (also variously called contemporary, experimental, and/or avant-garde music) musicians, Oliphant use their training to create songs that groove, via the employment of complicated techniques that often require the use of sheet music.  Sign up to their mailing list to be updated on future shows, as Oliphant can only sporadically be seen out in its natural habitat.
