Emerging from the fertile, thriving music scene of Philadelphia, indie pop band Arch of Love made their debut with the impressive single, "Night Walk." Made up of partners Chelsea Brennan and Chris Schackerman (formerly a touring member of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart), the duo weave influences of '80s new wave / pop with contemporary synth-driven sounds. The result is music simultaneously perfect for a dance club or a low-lit makeout session, full of energy and romance.

The bands debut singles were recorded with Jeff Zeigler (Nothing, A Sunny Day In Glasgow, The War On Drugs) and serve as just a taste of what's to come. 2019 has seen a promising start for the duo, playing alongside the likes of Choir Boy and Lust For Youth and receiving praise from the likes of BrooklynVegan, Vanyaland, and WXPN.
