South The Anatomy of a Car-Crash

NEW SINGLE: ‘SOUTH’

RELEASE DATE – 13/03/2020

LISTEN HERE // WATCH HERE

Arliston return with their first single of 2020 which was written while on tour in Canada. The song had the working title of ‘Stranger Things’ until the last days of mixing, as the hazy, crepuscular riff that the song is built around possesses an inescapable 80’s nostalgia. The clean minimal choruses are balanced beautifully between the chaotic downbeat of the verse, creating something unusual but brilliantly compelling.

“The band's playfully experimental take on digital pop is reaping dividends, with the three-piece charging into unknown climes.”– Clash 

Over the years, Arliston have had continued support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Clash, KALTBLUT, Amazing Radio, The 405 and Resonance FM who have championed the distinctive dark-wave sound with comparisons made with The National and Bon Iver. Alongside top engineer, Darren Jones and long-time collaborator Danny Monk, ‘South’ keeps to Arliston’s melancholy style with its clean reverb guitar line, effortless vocals and crisp drumbeat.

This meaning of the newest single ‘South’ centres around the question - At what point is there too much layered scar tissue to keep moving forwards in a relationship? Lots of little individually insignificant actions, adding up to total catastrophe.

“It’s a melancholy boiling pot, one reminiscent of Editors meets The National with a dash of something more contemporary thrown in for good measure.” – One Stop Record Shop

The video shows a couple taking turns alternately damaging, then repairing a hapless vehicle. The damage: reckless and permanent, and the repair: inadequate and makeshift. Continuing, until the car is a visible wreck. Driving forward seems like a constructive step, but the vehicle, the relationship, the thing they’re both sitting in has sustained too much damage, so crashes spectacularly and terminally. Any one of these things in isolation could have been absorbed or tolerated, but when they occur with the memory of previous transgressions raging away in the background it becomes too much. Everything goes ‘South’.

Each time Arliston release a song, it seems on foot gets planted deeper in the ambient, dark-indie sensibility they have become known for, while the other finds ever new ground to mix their growing palate with. This time referencing the mainstream-pop world with a nod to the powerfully minimal bass drops in Billie Ellish’s ‘When the Party’s Over’. Look out for new material and shows coming soon in 2020.

Music Submission, Andrew Hetherington

Andrew Hetherington
Artist or Band Name: 
Andrew Hetherington

In the age of commodification few artists are driven by a pure love of creating. Andrew Hetherington is one of a rare breed : ‘I make music that moves my soul’ he says.

Andrew Hetherington is an Australian indie musician, songwriter and producer. One of life’s polymaths, Hetherington straddles these roles with confidence bringing a fierce originality yet still classic sound, forged by the music he grew up with. 80s retro-wave, laced with smooth synths, mellow guitars and achingly beautiful vocals meet the harmony and rhythms of classic pop. It’s addictive, something both new and familiar at the same time.

Hetherington’s love of creating comes from a place of honesty; a long and very real journey toward sharing his work with the world. After years of playing bass in various projects, in 2017 he began to construct his own ideas. A youth spent at the record player started to pay dividends when beautifully crafted slices of pop started to emerge. The right kind of attention duly followed - music bloggers, playlist curators and radio stations took note, passed comment and spread the word. Described as ‘strong, innovative, beautiful’ by TunedLoud, the single ‘Life is Strange’ is soaked in 80s cool and ambient detachment.

Further original songs followed and together with ‘Spirits Fly’ and ‘The Greatest Joy’, the collection of tunes began winning awards in various songwriting contests. In such a saturated world, the work already stands out.

As a genuinely independent force, Hetherington released a six track EP of instrumentals, ‘Introspection’, as well as another six track EP of that addictive retro-wave pop, ‘In Space’. The drive and energy are clear; this is an artist in love with his craft, committed to sharing his work with the world. The title ‘In Space’ is apt: in such a crowded market place this indie artist has found a space of his own and crafted something that is connecting with listeners all over the world. With new songs due to drop in 2020, music fans should seek out Andrew Hetherington and connect with an artist who’s in it for all the right reasons. When you hear it, you’ll know.
