Introducing: Arthur Beatrice

Arthur Beatrice, Arthur Beatrice Band, Midland, Not Without Thinking

Little and less is known about London indie-pop outfit Arthur Beatrice. Even their label, Open Assembly, is shrouded in mystery. Hell, they currently list just one artist?..Arthur Beatrice. All of this unknown has me brimming with excitement. Their future is an open expanse and the beginning looks undeniably promising.

The beginning, two incredible singles featuring Ella Girardot’s powerfully transparent vocals. The first single, Midland, provides the perfect taste of enigmatic energy that defines Arthur Beatrice’s sound. Forces come together like unintended reactions to fractions in time, all driven to a common conclusion by the woven intricacies developed within each instrumentation. Not Without Thinking provides a more packaged experience as more of the band is featured throughout the song. Don’t worry about missing anything from these guys, Rarity In Form will be all over it.

The Antlers – Drift Dive

The Antlers have released the opening track for their upcoming summer EP, Undersea. With every release, The Antlers deliver pure magic encapsulated in a dream.

Starting with Hospice and progressing through their entire library, Drift Dive works off the beautiful development of The Antlers sound. It’s simply mesmerizing – “A million pieces in a billion places. A million pieces in a billion places…

Head over to Soundcloud to preview Drift Dive. Undersea is due out July 24 via Anti.

I AM PARALYZED BY THIS SOUND IN MY HEAD!! Purity Ring is back!! Oh baby, do yourself a favor and put on your headphones to experience the liveliness of Fineshrine. Still catching my breath.

This single alone should be enough to warrant buying tickets to their show. So do it now!! They’re playing the Rock N Roll Hotel, Wed September 19 in DC. Which should be the perfect venue to capture the ever-changing energy of Purity Ring.

In case you need further persuasion, check out RIF’s previous post on Purity Ring which includes a handful of amazing tracks from their debut release.
