Arc in Round's self-titled debut LP reflects a sensibility garnered from endless hours of studio tracking and hypnotic experimentation.

The album is a re-invention of influence, ranging from melodic gems (think Stereolab meets Broadcast) to epic prog jams, tied securely yet ever so loosely together by haunting male and female vocals.

The LP brims with layered dissonance and experimentation à la Disco Inferno & This Heat being driven by the Motorik Kraut rhythms of Neu and Can.

This is carefully crafted dark pop - taut yet spacey, noisy yet melodic; it's a smart experiment in sonic evolution.

There is a sweet contradiction in the intricate metamorphosis of sound and song; each track feeding from one another until the sum of its parts breaks free.

Formed in 2009 from the ashes of seminal shoegaze project Relay, the four-piece is comprised of Philadelphia stalwarts; producer/engineer Jeff Zeigler, co-songwriter Mikele Edwards, bassist Josh Meakim and drummer Matt Ricchini.

The album was tracked and mixed at Zeigler's own studio (Uniform Recording) and features guest appearances by members of Kurt Vile and the Violators and Pattern is Movement.

Arc In Round has also enlisted the talents of A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Our Brother the Native, Ape School and Benoit Pioulard in remixing select tracks.
