"...one of the most interesting releases we've heard this year."
Little Arrow have released a retro-tastic sci-fi inspired video for album track 'Medicine Moon', complete with shaky scenery and questionable aliens.
The video premiered on Gigslutz and you can now enjoy it in all its glory via Little Arrow's YouTube channel.
You can also stream and download album track 'Medicine Moon' for free from the band's SoundCloud page.
Little Arrow's Green Man Session performance of album track 'Loss Um' is also available to watch on YouTube.
Furious Finite, the band's third album, defies genres, incorporating elements of folk, grunge, rock and psychedelia.
Reared in the wilds of St. Davids in Pembrokeshire, Little Arrow bottle up the spirit of their natural surroundings and transpose it into an edgy, grunge folk cocktail. Lead singer, William Hughes, describes the album as “concerning the human spirit, the pains and great joys of human relationships as we gain and lose others throughout our life. It also expresses solace, which can be found through immersion into the outside environment. But most importantly it expresses collaboration between five good friends sharing high and lows and dancing in each other’s heads.”
Furious Finite is released via Bubblewrap Collective and is available to buy digitally on iTunes.
"HAWK combine post-punk and folk in a spine-tingling brew that'll take potshots at your emotional wellbeing" - The Line of Best Fit
HAWK bid farewell to 2014 with free single Hush, one of the most emotional and passionate tracks of the year, released 8th December 2014.
The single's haunting video premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can now enjoy it on HAWK's YouTube channel.
HAWK are Julie Hawk (vocals & guitar), Matthew Harris (guitar), Chris Handsley (bass) and Sam Campbell (drums). The single is a precursor to their first new release of 2015 via Veta Records, the stunning EP Clock Hands.
Hush embraces the furthest reaches of light and shade of the band’s uniquely primal sonic tapestry, teasing the pain and pleasure from every resonant chord and truly living the healing power of music through every spine tingling vocal nuance.
They have been described as everything from noir-rock to alternative-folk. Based in London, Julie, Matt, Chris, and Sam hail from various corners of the UK and Ireland. Their sound was described by Subba Cultcha as a "fusion of ambience and power" fronted by a "soaring, crackling vocal". Irish-born lead singer Julie Hawk initially embarked on a solo folk career, and began collaborating with Matt in 2012. After a year on the acoustic circuit, the pair gained support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson. The fledgling duo then joined Sam and Chris to form the band you hear now, adding a new abrasive edge to their sound while retaining the delicacy of their acoustic roots.
Hush is released 8th December via HAWK’s official website.

Dark like the woods, but with shafts of light piercing through the trees, The Trail is a record that initially seems full of shadows and gloom, but whose beauty lends it a vital optimism. Leaning lyrically upon the nature amid which she grew up, with frequent references to mountains, rivers, storms and skies scattered throughout, The Trail is full of songs that outgrow their origins, thriving and blossoming as they develop. With The Trail, Miss Kenichi has created an album that is boundlessly immersive, full of wisdom, grace and wonder.
The Trail is released 24th November via Sinnbus/Rough Trade.
