Born as a recording project in its northern Maryland home studio, Arc and Sender has developed into a full-fledged band. After an initial run of hand-packaged CD-Rs quickly sold out, the trio became increasingly entrenched in recording a proper debut.

Arc and Sender’s unique sound is derived from a thick chorus of drums, guitar, and baritone guitar. Quickly shifting tempo, timbre, and texture, Arc and Sender's intricate songs maintain a dramatic tension between composition and chaos. One part Brian Eno; one part Jesus Lizard; one part Dirty Three – Arc and Sender shows a diversity in between – and inside – each track. The band’s self-titled debut includes a range of pieces – from avant-garde interstitials to hard-driving walls of sounds to placid guitar arrangements. Despite being a relatively new band, the trio is earning comparisons to similar adventurous instrumental guitar-based bands like Growing, Tarentel, and Explosions in the Sky. (-via High Two)
