Katie Ellen

New Track: "Houses Into Homes" - Katie Ellen

After the breakup of rising band Chumped and a deeply involved romantic relationship, frontwoman Anika Pyle found herself in Philly, taking collage classes, writing new music, and starting a new recording project with former Chumped bandmate/drummer Dan Frelly that they eventually named Katie Ellen. The duo began working with Kyle Pulley at The Headroom Philadelphia, laying down the foundation for what would be the band's forthcoming debut full-length album Cowgirl Blues. The LP is due out this Friday, July 14 via Lauren Records, and you can join Katie Ellen that very same evening to welcome its arrival at PhilaMOCA with Field Mouse and Roger Harvey. You can also now check out the LP's latest single, "Houses Into Homes," and a Q&A with Pyle and Frelly at Stereogum.

Katie Ellen (w/ members of Chumped) plays Suburbia tonight (07.01) + Aviv on 07.17

Anika Pyle's DIY pop-punk project Chumped ended their short careers in February, but Pyle and drummer Dan Frelly have started a new project called Katie Ellen, named after Pyle’s grandmother. The band is noticeably more lo-fi than Chumped, but the melodies and charm of Chumped are still present. In January they released a demo entitled “wild <3”, which features the single “lucy stone” (streaming below) that was released in late 2015. The track is centered around the anxieties associated with the pressures and expectations set by society, family, and loved ones. Pyle’s intimate vocals and poignant lyrics shine through the band’s lo-fi and fuzzy recordings. Katie Ellen will be playing the DIY space Suburbia in Brooklyn tonight (July 1st) and will play Aviv on July 17th. - John Honan
