      Underwater Robots


      After years of fruitless cover shows, underappreciated and underwhelming house parties, and, frankly, untapped potential, Underwater Robots have taken up the torch, striving to create a great American sound with their forthcoming debut album Like Frank Sinatra. With influences from Wilco and The Old 97s, and following the Americana/Alt traditions of John Prine and Tom Petty, Underwater Robots (affectionately referring to themselves as UWR) clumsily find harmony and balance between Eric Birklebachs understated acoustic songwriting and Tim Oberholtzers bravado. With tongue in cheek lyrics like wanna quit my day job, wanna write a hit song like Tommy Tu-tone and Im never drinking again.until tonight its clear they know how to write a song without taking themselves too seriously. Rounded out by comping keys from Taj Aya, heavy hitting drummer Bob Gleason, dexterious bassist Joe Mulroy (who swears hes not actually in the band), and the greenhorn John Sepcie, UWR looks to make a splash this summer and beyond.Spending the last year working on their debut offering, the Robots gathered their mental and musical supplies and set off for the recording Mecca known as the Headroom Philadelphia, a DIY studio home to many local and regional acts, to craft 11 tracks ranging from whiskey swilling Thursday Night to indie quasi-love songs like Wasted Tuesday, UWRs Like Frank Sinatra has offerings for any alternative, country, or indie music fan. Designed with progress in mind, these nautical hooligans have high hopes for their future.
