âQuelleâ is the German word for âsource,â and like the bandâs endearingly wide-eyed owl logo, its name â literally âThe Source Sourceâ â begs the question: The source (of the source) of what? Alas, while the bandâs German associations end there, The Quelle Source makes up for a lack of European depth by instead providing well-crafted American indie rock/pop music.
Formed by five Saint Josephâs University students in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2005, The Quelle Source joins the likes of Dr. Dog, Man Man, and The Teeth as another component of the ever-burgeoning Philadelphia indie music scene. Initially bonding over their interest in heavy-hitting bands like Wilco, Radiohead and My Morning Jacket, the band quickly found themselves awash in new, unique material. Lead songwriters Dan Wisniewski and Kevin Ryan proved instant foilsâWisniewskiâs intriguingly mysterious lyrics grew wings when attached to their vocal and musical hooks, while Ryanâs crooning, reflective pieces served as counterweights and relief from the bandâs more obtuse work.
With Ryanâs lead vocals increasingly being compared to those of Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Thom Yorke of Radiohead, and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, the rest of the band continues to draw from more varied performers including Guided by Voices, The Shins, and Wolf Parade, which gives The Quelle Source a familiar yet hard-to-place sound. Live, the band is best known for their spirited performances which fully utilize available stage space; the charming onstage antics of bassist Chris Wafer, keyboardist Addison Lilholt, and Wisniewski highlight their performances as the band plows through each set at breakneck speed.
After years of performing across the Philadelphia area and tightening their songwriting, the bandâs efforts culminated in their first EP, cut at MilkBoy Studios in Ardmore, PA in November 2007. Before its release, however, the band was dealt a blow when drummer John Cooper abruptly quit the band in December 2007. While looking for a replacement, the sextet went forward in releasing their eponymous EP on March 14, 2008. The band eventually brought on not one but two new membersâfriend Adam Della Penna on drums and roommate Dan Comly to play additional keyboards, bringing the band back to full steam today.
In April 2008, The Quelle Source was voted Best Local Philadelphia-based Band by Saint Josephâs students, and album cut âTruthâ has since been featured in âA Little Streak of Red,â a short film by Philadelphia filmmaker Nicole Allan. Highlighted most recently at Philadelphia venues such as The Trocadero, The Tin Angel and The M Room, The Quelle Source continues to capitalize on their strong local following. Consistently debuting new material, the band recently instated a new mailing list feature where they send out a studio recording of a brand new song on the first of every month.
