Arc In Round – 'II' Wednesday 30 May, 2012
Shoegaze meets krautrock is an apt description of Arc In Round‘s debut. Sure, it’s all rock n’ roll but hey, labels like ‘Kraut-Gaze’ are half the fun! The Philly four piece have been crafting spaced out melodic jams since forming in 2009. The release date of their self-titled LP has been changed to June 26 (still through La Société Expéditionnaire). The record kicks off with ‘II’, a strong introduction to the angular beats, showering guitars and vocal harmonies that glue this record together. It’s a strong release with enough diversity of songwriting and hooky melodies to keep your ears invested. It’s cliche but… it is worth the wait.
