Syd Arthur - Sound MirrorSyd Arthur - Sound Mirror

In a classic match-up of spaced-out blues, regal folk and symphonic rock; the ultra-competent Syd Arthur embrace an electric kool-aid past to launch beautiful futures, quietly incorporating electronic effects into grand, guitar-driven jams and pedal-powered pop concoctions. Grooving to woozy hallucinations whose pitch-perfect execution harness choice psychedelia for incandescent journeys, “Mirror,” projects mythical bliss with breezy ease, a modern take on a golden age when cool licks were hitched to delicious metaphysics and fancy fretwork anchored simple wishes and innocent wisdom. The Canterbury band’s dreamy scenery burns long, fast and hard possessing an unerring ear for melody and genuine affection for their influences. Paired alongside Sean Lennon’s latest side-project, Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Britain’s spell-binding Syd Arthur plays Madison’s High Noon Saloon May 31st
