The ties that bind any siblings vary in strength. For alt rockers Jocelyn & Chris Arndt, those ties are made of carbon fiber. “He’s my best friend,” says Jocelyn. “And to be able to chase this shared dream with my best friend, well, that’s everything.”
The Arndt's unique combination of devastatingly powerful vocals, retro-infused guitar, and entrancing lyrics creates what's best described as an alternative-leaning throwback to pure, album rock. Press includes Baeble, Paste, Huff Post, Relix, Jam in The Van, and numerous others. Jocelyn, Chris, and their band perform hundreds of shows at legendary venues and festivals coast to coast. Their albums feature guests like G Love, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, and Cory Wong of Vulfpeck. Their single "Red Stops Traffic” cracked the Billboard Triple A Top 40 with radio airplay nationwide, while their album "Go" held the #2 position on The Jambands Top 30 Album Chart for 3 consecutive moths. Perhaps most amazingly, they’ve done all of this while balancing college at Harvard University. Come rock with them at SXSW!
