Arms Akimbo is a 4-piece rock outfit comprised of Peter Schrupp, Christopher Kalil, Matthew Sutton and Colin Boppell; and their story is simple.
After meeting in college, they formed a band inspired by artists like Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Manchester Orchestra. They self-produced an E.P. called “Vignettes”, from which their single, “Shakin”, received over 150,000 Spotify streams. After gigging around Los Angeles and opening for artists such as Walk The Moon, The Animals, Colleen Green, Kat Dahlia, and Strangers You Know, they paired up with producer Stephen Gomez (The Summer Set) and released three new singles.
Their track, “Michigan” went viral on Spotify with over 750,000 plays -- reaching #48 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, #45 on the US Viral Chart, and #7 on the Canada Viral Chart in its first month of release. They followed these singles with sold-out release shows and a sold-out Echo Park Rising performance.
On the heels of a Santa Monica Pier Twilight Series performance opening for Eric Burdon & The Animals to thousands of people, Arms Akimbo finished a brand new single due to release in the Fall, an E.P. to be released early 2018 and gearing up to take their place in the indie rock scene.
