SYD ARTHUR: UK tour


SYD ARTHUR - 200 - November 2012When SYD ARTHUR emerged in 2012 with their debut, self-recorded, self produced, self released album ‘On An On,’ it didn’t take long for them to rocket to critical acclaim. Hailed as natural successors to Canterbury’s famous folk-prog sound, they not only connected with fans of Caravan, Soft Machine and Gong, but with fans of contemporary artists like Tame Impala, Devendra Banhart and Wolf People.

Rave reviews across Q, Mojo, Uncut and The Guardian followed. With the release of the single ‘Dorothy’ in late 2012, the band had their first taste of UK radio support, scoring plays across Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, Amazing Radio, NME Radio, Q Radio and more.

So what are they doing here on LOUD HORIZON? Well, for a start They’ve appeared on this blog in the past – I’d like to say before all those heady ‘big-hitters’ above …. but I couldn’t guarantee that! Not in all cases at least.

More importantly, I like ’em. A lot.

They’re not yet at the stage of playing he really big venues, as can be seen from the tour-dates below, but having been invited by the man himself to tour with Paul Weller, and with a spot booked at this year’s SXSW Festival, it’s only a matter of time.

So this is one of these ‘moments’ that you need to seize. If you want to see a ‘huge’ band play some small, intimate venue before they become ‘HUGE,’ then get along to one of the following shows.

You have been warned.
