about

Arthur is a new artist based out of Delaware county, PA. Having just turned 20, Arthur is a singer songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist. He currently only records at home and as of yet has never debuted his music anywhere. Citing influences spanning several genres and decades, Arthur’s music stands out as an amalgamation of experimental songwriting and classical-esque melodic progressions.

I was introduced to Arthur through a close friend and engineer, Caleb Laven. He played me one of the ‘kids’ stuff, a band that he had been working with and producing over the past few years in Philadelphia. I was immediately enveloped by the creativity and experimental nature of Arthur’s music. For quite some time I’ve been looking for releases that will help broaden the scope of PLZ and take it a step away from its electronic roots. Arthur’s music not only does this, but also builds upon his ‘Acid Pop’ predecessors.

I think what I like so much about Arthur’s music is it’s fluidity. One day he’ll send me a hyper digitally-degraded synth pop track about being invisible (or at least ignored), and the next it’ll be a haunting lap steel ballad to working on a farm. I can never truly pin down what he’ll send next, but I’m always incredibly excited to hear it.

This three track collection was compiled as a short-but-sweet introduction to Arthur’s world. ‘Scared’ was the first track I ever heard of his and feel it’s the best way to intro others to his work, ‘ AB’ has the country and folk mentality but mixed with elaborate drum programming and strange woozy mix fade-outs, whilst ‘Re-Animator’ shows off his textural sonic capabilities and instrumental prowess.

Arthur has signed to PLZ for an album to follow this EP and I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to share his music with the world.
