Arthur Beatrice have been playing the hype very well. After getting a serious of seriously good write-ups late last year they’ve only just released their songs online leaving, at least this fickle blogger, with some serious curiosity. They have a a sort of darkly smooth shuffle to their sound, a touch of darkness under what can be quite a light sound. They hail from London and, in quite a coup for such a new band, have already played the Albert Hall (supporting Metronomy there last year). I’d be interested to hear what you all think about this bunch because I for one am pretty psyched.
