Arthur Beatrice - Carter (EP Review)

Wednesday, 31 July 2013 Written by Ryan Crittenden

One of the word-of-mouth bands of the moment, Arthur Beatrice, have finally harnessed some of the hype they have gathered with the release the four-track ‘Carter' EP.

The London band, fronted by Ella Girardot and Orlando Leopard (a name that deserves so much more attention), have turned heads in recent months with impressive live shows that showcase some brilliantly soothing vocals.

Vandals gives an immediate idea of the sort of sound the four-piece have nurtured. It’s easy on the ear and minimalist, with sharp guitar riffs sitting alongside a soft bassline, allowing Giradot to star with her Austra-like vocals.

Butcher’s Hook is the pick of the short EP, with house influences coming to the fore as a lovely piano line pulses throughout. The keys give the track an extra kick and set it up to get the shufflers going, while it is also given a bit of a facelift with a Maths Times Joy remix that closes the EP.

The ‘Carter' EP gives critics and fans alike something to look forward to and it’s rather like a teaser episode for a long-anticipated television series. There are some seriously promising signs here and it will be interesting to see whether they can be reproduced in album form.
