Instrumental rock quartet Pelican began its vocal-less plight in Chicago, IL in 2001.  Although their music has been categorized as instrumental metal, post-metal, post-rock, sludge, and/or stoner rock, guitarist Trever de Brauw (in an interview with DrownedInSound) says that they are "neither trend setters nor trend followers." Touring has evolved the band's style from "drawn-out" and "slow-building" to "more direct and faster, and straight to the point" because they wanted more energy on stage and at the show.  On classification, de Brauw further states, "I don't think of Pelican as a metal band.  I feel like we're part of a trajectory of Midwest bands that kind of blend aggression with a pop sensibility, so while it's easy to classify us with instrumental bands, we're not instrumental by design.  We just didn't know how to put vocals in our music and for it to sound right."
