Brisbane artist Aren’t‘s new single ‘For Love’ is exquisitely beautiful – a poised and reflective piece of indie folk that is delicate and mesmerising. I was lucky enough to witness to this being played live at the recent 4000 Records Birthday Party (where the hauntingly glacial Amber Ramsay from Cloud Tangle took on the backing vocals). It was just transfixing watching Fionn Richards (the name behind Aren’t) play: his prowess at the finger picking style of guitar was jaw dropping and his presence enigmatic and reserved.
The track, released through the tasteful 4000 Records, is from Aren’t’s debut EP ‘Creatures of Habit’ due out on 2 December 2021 (available to pre-order through the link below). It comes adorned with the most beautiful artwork from Grace Taylor Illustration and is available as a cassette. Digital streamin though all the usual channels will be available soon.
Arent will be launching the single on 6 November along with a host of amazing bands (see below). Full details and tickets available here.
