SYD ARTHUR have had a stellar 18 months. From playing huge USA arena shows, touring with fellow progressive-experimentalists White Denim as well as The Strokes to releasing their most successful album to date, Apricity, their reputation stands as a seriously creative force.
Formed out of their own home county’s forest party rave scene, and with a hard-won DIY self- sufficiency, Syd Arthur developed a sound and approach miles beyond their foursquare indie peers using swirling rock with psychedelic textures, guitar-based trance with a groove; adaptive and bold.
So here’s your three minute warning for a psychedelic jazz bomb, uniquely soulful and trippy but in the best possible taste. Steely Dan meets Todd Rundgren? Dynamic and prog-inspired with crunching chords and minor keys a la Tame Impala; unconventional time signatures and clever jazzy riffing. Oh my word, we bloody love this band. And so does the press…
“Modern-day cosmic rock from Canterbury band of brothers” – Mojo Album Of The Week | No: 18 Albums of 2017
“Unique, soulful and trippy in the best sense” – The Guardian
“As playful as they are serious and as innovative as they are traditional, this is surely what Syd Arthur set out to be.” ⋆⋆⋆⋆ – Q
“Super summery & nostalgia-tinged… sounds like it’s being played through an Instagram filter – very chilled and with this underlying theme of lost innocence” – The Independent
Syd Arthur is brothers Liam Magill (vocals, guitar, Joel Magill (bass, vocals), and Josh Magill (drums) and Raven Bush (violin, keyboards, mandolin). This is a show you really should be at.
