Beau and The Arrows have been knocking about since 2008 so like most bands worth their salt they have had to do some grafting to work up to this, their debut release. The band’s brand of atmospheric indie is nothing out of the ordinary but very palatable, its ambience and male and female harmonies sounding similar to bands like the xx.
“Fix” gets slightly hypnotic after a few listens, and as the band sing “I want you”, it does kind of make me want to follow them..somewhere. It would be intriguing to see if that atmosphere transfers to a live show.
Their album “Future Kicks” is scheduled for release in the summer and it will be interesting to see what more Beau and The Arrows have to offer.
