Arn-Identified Objects and Alien Friends can take you on a spacecraft journey. Just that it will whizz past different genres of music of the 70s and 80s. Retro in tone, delivery and lyrical storytelling-you see it all boil down to one unique individual. There is a disco aura, a new-wave tang to this music that you might not hear unironically again. This is his single from No Sweets for E, Smash.
By all accounts, this song is a real new-wave rocker. Joy Division & The Cure have their essence in this, from the riff to the guitar tone that hits you first. However, that is second fiddle to how the song has a country swing. This delicate balance is incredibly difficult to find, a tip of the scale will make it seem like MTV pioneers. You can hear the influences, but also the melodic choices that make it such a swinging hit. Arn-Identified Objects and Alien Friends creates a song for their album that is the real salt-shaker, the song that is the epicentre of the album for the tempo and groove. It is an enjoyable affair with some cool flourishes-a song that will be adored live for its groovy tempo and catchy elements.
Arn-Identified Objects and Alien Friends has created quite the buzz with this kind of tone. His album, 17 Birds at the Summer’s Gate, has a collection of stories you might not find from full-fledged authors. I’d love to hear this song in the consequential action sequences of Baby Driver (2017). Follow him for more great music like this and explore his album for more!
