Track Of The Day: Syd Arthur
Canterbury band Syd Arthur release new single Ode To The Summer on October 31. They provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day here.
The foursome have been together for five years now. The line-up is Liam Magill (guitar/vocals), Raven Bush (violin and nephew of Kate Bush), Joel Magill (bass) and Fred Rother (drums). They are very much the natural successors to bands such as The Soft Machine, Caravan and Hatfield And The North.
However, what they have done over the past few years is to develop a style that, while it’s predicated on the aforementioned past giants, has contemporary flavour. There’s psych, jazz, folk and funk in their sound.
You can see them live at:
Mon. 12: London Never Records Vinyl Session
Sat. 17: Bath T On The Farm
Sat. 1: London South Bank Merge Festival
Sat. 1: London Brixton Hootannany
Fri. 21: Canterbury Farmhouse
