Arc Iris are a wildly adventurous, genre-blurring band founded in Massachusetts by frontwoman, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jocie Adams, formerly of the Low Anthem.
Her bandmembers include the seasoned rhythm section of bassist Max Johnson, pianist and multi-instrumentalist Zachary Tenorio-Miller, and drummer Raymond Belli, with cellist Robin Ryczek and trumpeter Mike Irwin. Adams, a formally trained classical composer (as well as a former NASA researcher), formed the band as a wide-ranging ensemble informed by everything from sophisticated 1970s pop to folk, country, cabaret, jazz, classical music, and contemporary sources such as Grizzly Bear.
The band established itself as a touring ensemble with Calexico, CocoRosie, Marco Benevento, Menomena, and Justin Townes Earle, to name a few, and was signed to Anti in 2013. The group's self-titled debut album, recorded and mixed by Dan Cardinal (with Andrew Barr on drums) and featuring a large cast of musical collaborators, was released in April 2014, drawing considerable critical acclaim. Building on their unique sound, Arc Iris delivered their follow-up, the more textural and rhythmic Moon Saloon, in August 2016. The album was self-produced and mixed by David Wrench (FKA twigs, Jamie xx). ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
