Philly rock band Cold Fronts recently collaborated with Zach Sewall (formerly of Chiddy Bang and No Diavolo) on a new track. Sewall releases music under the name Grave Goods, so when he teamed up with Cold Fronts they decided to call their collaborative project Cold Graves. Their song, “New Face,” combines Cold Fronts usual rock aesthetic and vocals with Sewall’s electronic vibe, which makes for a cool-sounding lo-fi track.
Cold Fronts will be going into the studio in August and plan to release some new songs in September. In the meantime, catch their set on August 9th at PhilaMOCA with City Rain, The Mendles, and comedians Lisa Yost, James Hesky, and Alex Grubard. There is an $8 donation charge at the door and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the organization “To Write Love On Her Arms.” For more information visit the event page here.

No Diavolo is the new project from former Chiddy Bang member Zachary Sewall. Sewall left the band to pursue his own musical interests; this new two-piece project comes after Sewall moved to Tallahassee, FL, and met Giulia Marsico. “I moved down here about one year ago from Philadelphia for a change of pace and cheaper college tuition,” Sewall told me via e-mail. “The area has been pretty rad music-wise. A super small community that totally thrives and progresses. I do miss the basement shows in Philly, though.”
Below are the first fruits of No Diavolo’s musical efforts; two new songs and a video for the song “Killacobra.” “We plan on finishing a short EP we’ve been working on, perfect the live set, and then get out on the road,” adds Sewall. How does he describe the music? “It’s a tough one to describe. We wanted to somehow combine psychedelia, surf, and soul while using a combination of live instruments and electronics.” Better yet, on their Twitter page No Diavolo describe themselves as “sonic south soul.”
