With the release of new album Apricity (Harvest/Communion) 2017 sees Syd Arthur lauded as ahead-of-the-curve trailblazers, pop-psych adventurers who count as peers Tame Impala, Temples and Toy.
They have built an enviable reputation as a band apart. Formed out of the forest party rave scene in their home county of Kent, and with a hard-won DIY self-sufficiency, they developed a sound and approach miles beyond their foursquare indie peers. Here was swirling rock with psychedelic textures, guitar-based trance with a funk groove. A band adaptive enough, bold enough, to tour with White Denim and The Strokes.
