Archery is a synth pop band from Grand Rapids formed in 2013. The group consists of quartet Mitchell Berrie (vocals/gutiar), Levi Beach (synths), Andrew Possehl (bass/synths) and Theo Ndawillie II (Drums). Their sound has been described as a marriage of 80s new wave artists such as Depeche Mode and The Cure with a modern experimentation and pop sensibility.
In late February 2013, Archery began writing music in the after hours of a contemporary church. Late night sessions of pulsing synths, driving bass and soaring melodies developed into verses and choruses. Lyrics filled with imagery of the darker side of love, life and death followed. Eventually the friends had built a collection of crescendo-filled, poignant material.
