Arc In Round's Jeff Zeigler on Balancing Life as a Producer and Performer

A swirl of krautrock and shoegaze, Arc In Round (formerly known as Relay) draws as much influence from Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine as they do Camberwell Now and Can. The four-piece are also a primary figure in the Philadelphia music scene, thanks in large part to lead guitarist and vocalist Jeff Zeigler's production work on more than 20 albums, including Phoenix locals Lymbyc Systym's Shutter Release and Kurt Vile's Childish Prodigy.

Arc In Round is also bassist Josh Meakim, keyboardist/vocalist Mikele Edwards and drummer Matt Ricchini. The band are currently on tour with Frightened Rabbit, but for their upcoming Yucca Tap Room show, they'll have local act Knesset opening for them.

We called up Zeigler to discuss his band's varied influences, the changes they've faced as a band and their debut self-titled album.
