Forming in Brisbane, Arrows are post-rock balladeers without a filter. Unconventional “rock” instrumentation over bombastic / receding harmonies. Desperately reaching vocals which roll ceaselessly between pop & depravity. Round this out with a strong DIY ethic, dive-in.
First a self-released demo in 2006, following with a 12” split the year after, Arrows soon became a genre favorite amongst a tiny few. But it was the debut album Modern Art & Politics that would flood onto “Best of 2008” lists here & across the globe, a record possessing an honesty that has garnered them an obsessed fanbase both in their Brisbane hometown and in underground circles worldwide. Almost two years on, Arrows have recorded Try and Stay Upright, seamlessly more dynamic and emotionally gripping than its 2008 predecessor – slower, shorter and certainly this young bands most powerful statement yet.
