PREMIERE: Arro Jones
Well, what have we here? Another premiere. You lot love those, huh. Makes ya feel all funky fresh, top of everyone’s respective noo-moosic detectin’ game. Admittedly this also keeps us on our promotional toes, which we guess we will have to endeavour to do more of given the rather spicy news that we get to reveal to y’all in the next week or so. The student jounalist ever-present in our soul – hence this shit that you’re reading right now – is going to asphyxiate with envy, we reckon. Anyway, let’s dive straight into it as we’re very happy indeed to unveil the debut single from new-ish bloke Arro Jones, who bringeth forth a song called Fever as not-so-inconspicuously indicated by the all-telling picture above which also contains a super-misty depiction of the back of a guy who is presumably our protagonist here and also instill further mental imagery of perhaps the Drive soundtrack, as indeed pointed out on this-here press release. Whilst the song is apparently about lengthy neon-tinted night time drives through Los Angeles – bit more Drive soundtrack for you there – our guy Arro Jones is from Manchester and has been locked away in some kinda fucked up musical Narnian wardrobe over the course of this year, only to re-emerge as a beautifully stylised producer butterfly. It’s a bit Depeche Mode, with more upbeat undertones lending itself to the more bass-driven works of New Order. And, of course, coupled with that breathiness in the vocal that – you guessed it – the Drive soundtrack has made nearly everyone our age accustomed to, to the point that we actually feel that we were real people in the 80’s.
