Since it's inception in 2005, Otter Petter has become a staple of the Chicago music scene, delivering "big, bright, hooky tunes with their hearts pinned proudly on their sleeves" (Chicago Reader). The indie-pop quintet features brothers Michael (guitar, vocals) and William Pritchard (drums), Raphael Dussaussoy (guitars, keyboards), Amy Anderson (bass, vocals) and Jeremy Tromburg (keyboards). Otter Petter's latest release, 'Nice Night for a Knife Fight,' was recorded at Clava Studios in Chicago by Colin Sipos (Iron & Wine, Califone, Steepwater Band). The album features a bigger and more mature sound than 2008's 'Fireflies and Lamplights,' which was greeted with glowing reviews. The melodies found within are "devastatingly infectious" (New City), and described as a "perfect blend of roots rock, sugary pop and complex indie rock' ( During the last two years, the band has performed throughout the Midwest and East Coast, including a showcase at CMJ in New York, appearances at Six Flags Great America and was even filmed in the NBC Pilot TV show 'State of Romance.' The band was tapped by director Peter Sollet ('Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist') to film segments at the Double Door and Millennium Park in Chicago. Otter Petter emerged on the Chicago music scene in 2005 with their self-titled, five-song EP.
