Philadelphia Collins, the recording project of Devin McKnight (Speedy Ortiz/Grass Is Green) and Theo Hartlett (Ovlov/Flat Swamp) will release Derp Swervin’, their debut EP on July 24th via Exploding In Sound Records. The band are excited to share the album’s latest single, “Dogsbody” with SPIN, featuring vocals from Two Inch Astronaut’s Sam Rosenberg. SPIN described the new single as “a thundering odd-meter cut driven by blistering guitar lines, and it features some biting vocals from Two Inch Astronaut singer Sam Rosenberg”.
McKnight recently discussed having Rosenberg on “Dogsbody,” offering:
“This was the first song Theo and I recorded where the demo came out so good that it could have easily been the final version. I had the riffs written from when I was crashing on Alex Molini’s (of Dirty Dishes) couch in Boston. Theo and I wrote the song in literally 10 minutes after that. I think I asked like 4 singers to do vocals and in a pinch, when no one got back to me, I knew I could rely on my trusty pal Sam Rosenberg to spit the hotness over the track. And that he did. It’s the kind of thing with Sam and I where I know I can call on him whenever I need him because he’s so quick and good with his work it almost seems like cheating. #Blessed to have such a talented and close friend who lives down the street from me. I never hesitate to put Colesville, MD on the map. Respect.”
