Fresh from shows at Liverpool Sound City, Lancashire newcomer Johnny Sands is pleased to share the video for forthcoming debut single ‘Arno Arno’ – due June 8th via Baltic Records.

Shot in one windy day on an old 16mm camera, the video complements the delicate melodies and distinct vocals of ‘Arno Arno’.
Son of a Parisian jazz musician and his muse, a psychologist who pioneered talking to animals, Johnny grew up immersed in music and arts. After travelling extensively and a brief dalliance as a model, Sands settled in Liverpool and quickly embedded himself in the local music scene curating and promoting gigs as well as working on his own music.
A fruitful collaboration swiftly followed between himself and Swiss producer Dave Berger (Outfit) and after they disbanded, Sands concentrated on his solo efforts and self-released an EP, ‘Postcards’. The positive feedback galvanised him and he got to work on a debut album – which ‘Arno Arno’ is taken from.
Creating fragile soundscapes, Sands’ influences range from Air, Neil Young and Serge Gainsbourg to Talk Talk and The Blue Nile.
Having supported the likes of Wild Beasts, Alt-J and Django Django, Johnny Sands is now striking out on his own – his single launch show is next week at London’s Bedroom Bar.
