The Sound of Arrows release their album (‘Voyage’, fact fans) so soon now (Novermber 7th, fact fans) that you can almost hear it. Well actually, right now, you really can hear a little bit of it. It’s the lead single from it, ‘Wonders’. And in all honesty, it’s truly one of the most beautiful pieces of music we’ve heard in 2011.
These boys are truly in a league of their own when it comes to their craft. And ‘Wonders’ is a defining example of such craft – lush synth wizadry with one ear set on an electronic production with dizzying warmth, and the other ear focused on a hair-stand-on-end pop melody.
