U.K. Risers Arthur Beatrice Unveil New ‘Midland’ Single
Arthur Beatrice is a band, not a guy, and what’s more, the U.K. foursome is co-fronted by a female, Ella Girardot. It’s her beguiling voice that can be heard on the new single ‘Midlands,’ a preview of the group’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Working Out.’ Give it a listen below.
‘Working Out’ follows Arthur Beatrice’s acclaimed ‘Carter EP’ and lands March 4, one day after they kick off their first-ever U.S. tour with a show at the Rough Trade shop in Brooklyn. The trek wraps in Austin a week later, where Giradot and the boys will busy themselves with five days of SXSW shows.
According to a rather spot-on press release, ‘Midland’ finds the London crew at their “most atmospheric and beguiling but also at their most direct.” There’s certainly no shortage of melody or mystery, and that’s always a good combo. This could be a U.K. band to watch.
