Happily, the musical paths of Katy Otto (Trophy Wife), Julia Gaylord (True if Destroyed), John Pettit (Make a Rising) and Nikki Karam crossed in Philadelphia in 2013 to form Callowhill. Their sound is space and sea meets edge and clutter. Post-punk vibes, krautrock crushes, indie pop memories. Callowhill's interplay of hard and soft guitars juxtaposed at times against a spacier texture reflect a deep appreciation for bands like Sleater-Kinney and Helium.
In February 2015, the group released its debut seven inch on Otto's label Exotic Fever Records.
If Leonard Cohen and PJ Harvey had a baby who grew up listening to The Smiths, Nina Simone and old Rolling Stones records, that baby might form a band that sounds like ARC DIVERS, a rock quartet from Philadelphia starring local sweethearts Emily Ana Zeitlyn (The Weeds), Ross Bellenoit (Birdie Busch), Tom Bendel (Buried Beds) and Todd Erk. ARC DIVERS use equal parts stabbing lyric, extreme dynamic and darling melody to whisper to the sadder side of your soul.
