Arran Arctic is one Arran Southall, who according to his myspace “sings, records, programs, produces and plays acoustic/electric guitar, violin, pedal organ, accordion, concertina, harpsichord, recorder, tin whistle, drums, percussion, metal pipe xylophone, wine glasses, piano and xeremia.”
An email from him dropped into my inbox after I last switched off my computer. So intrigued was I by the story of this young man (see his website for more) that I’ve played his free single at least three times already this morning. And it’s made my playlist for Thursday night’s show on the radio.
This is beautiful, haunting stuff to lose yourself in. Go and download these tracks -but you only have two weeks, as they will be replaced by a brand new single.
