Old Ink

(Zine / DL . BWR022)

Little Arrow release their 4th album, Old Ink, on the 12th July 2015 through Bubblewrap Collective as a limited edition print Zine with digital download. Following on from the expansive, grunge-folk of last year’s Furious Finite, Old Ink sees the band return to the roots of acoustic music, tracing long-buried pathways in ancient soil. The resultant, relatively minimalist sound is comprised of plucked guitar, ukelele, percussion, bass and cello, with the soaringly powerful vocal of William Hughes in the foreground.

Poetically > Ogre

(DL . BWR016)

These tracks will be familiar to any of those who engaged with the pastoral grunge-folk of the Wild Wishes LP. These versions, however, feature the full Little Arrow band encompassing the complementary guitars of Dan Messore and Ben Sharpe, Callum Duggan’s soaring bass lines and the percussive power of Richard Chitty alongside frontman William Hughes. Studio recordings Poetically and I Man Ogre are now bigger, bolder and more epic than ever before, while Paddy Fields, recorded at Green Man Festival, showcases the band’s fully evolved live sound.

William spent much of 2010 in the wilderness of West Wales where, inspired by his surroundings, he continuously wrote and recorded songs with friends and family members. The result is this rich and enchanting debut album, which exhibits an accomplished, enigmatic artist at work.

From start to finish, ‘Music, Masks & Poems’ is full of uplifting, eclectic modern folk and gospel songs which make the spine tingle with its rugged quality.
