Although North Arm are originally from Newcastle, it feels like they’ve been learn’d in the teachings of the Leisure Coast. On a completely unrelated note, how good is Game of Thrones?
Their reach for angelic guitar climaxes is easily reached, swaying with the hazy ritual that was first introduced by Spiritualized in the 90’s, but a lot fail to recapture. There’s something incredibly tranquillising about their new single “Careless”, an uneven airiness that the Jesus & Mary Chain liked to occasionally pull out on numbers such as “Just Like Honey”.
Although it takes a little while to collect itself, North Arm steer this misty gem into a serene finale of peaking guitars, shifting the band next to local luminaries Cull and Shining Bird.
