Arrows Of Love
Stream single ‘Come With Me’
Second album ‘PRODUCT’ out August 11th
“The five-piece, centered around Teranchi and bassist/vocalist Nuha Ruby Ra, have been spitting out caustic and frenetic missives for the past half-decade, building a reputation as a manic live act with a sardonic twist.” – Noisey
“Suitably riotous” – Wonderland
On August 11th, East London art-rockers Arrows Of Love will release their eagerly anticipated second album, ‘PRODUCT’, an eleven track masterpiece and an epic amalgamation of blisteringly heavy guitars and earnest, heartfelt lyrics.
They’ve now shared their brand new single, ‘Come With Me’. “The song is a collection of scenarios and themes personal to me” singer Nuha Ruby Ra tells us, “Ghosts from the past, wrestles with mental health, destructive patterns and loss of control. It plays out like a scene from a film noir – the story stems from manic depressive episodes characterised by two people who are really the same person; one in highest control while one is the weakest.”
The track follows previous cut ‘Signal’ but treads a slightly different path, expressing two very different sides to this new record. ‘Come With Me’ is slow and seductive, telling the intense story of loss, addiction, sex and mourning that Nuha describes as a “detachment from reality”.
The LP was produced by Mikko Gordon (Thom Yorke, Gaz Combes), in the studio he built himself at Goldsmiths University, and mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac. Lead track ‘Signal’ was also given a mix by celebrated engineer Margo Broom (Fat White Family).
As with their acclaimed 2014 debut, ‘Everything’s F*cked’, the album is a striking and beautiful critique on modern life, politics, philosophy and the fight against apathy. ‘PRODUCT’ is a call to arms, even more so than previous outputs, one which has been forged over the years and created by their own circumstance. Here, the collective weave a world which is in equal parts powerful and vulnerable, where poetry meets pure punk attitude.
The 5-piece led by co-writers Nima and Nuha recently found themselves backed by the UK’s highly competitive PRS Momentum Music Fund. After accepting an invite from CMJ Music Marathon the band confirmed a string of US dates, followed by a headline London show with Parallel Lines before the album recording began.
Arrows Of Love also have a reputation amongst fans as something of a live phenomenon. Originally aligned with the early East London wave of bohemian rock bands, it was their fierce performances and creativity that has taken them across the globe, to the likes of SXSW and End of the Road, to sharing stages with the likes of The Fall, Buzzcocks, British Sea Power, 80’s Matchbox B-Line Disaster, The Wytches and many more.
Drawing comparisons to the discordant, emotive musicianship of Sonic Youth to the raw power of McClusky, this second LP sees a band fully diversified, and truly unique.
