Hailing from Hackney, London, rock five piece Arrows of Love have announced their UK tour in promotion of their new single 'Honey' which will be released on July 9th on Superdark/Handspun Records. The release precedes their debut album which will be released later in the summer.
The track has a dominating bass line and drum rhythm which add enormous weight to the sound. Coupled with the retro rock guitar riffs and White Stripes style vocals, this track has a vintage feel about it - as if they've been around for years but we've only just discovered them. The certainly appear to be influenced by eighties/ nineties music; according to singer and guitarist Nima Teranchi they have released a series of cassette tapes with the new single on them. '50 posh ones and 200 not-so-posh ones', she reveals. 'If you come to one of these tour shows with an old school tape walkman you get a free tape.'
Their upcoming album was recorded in Nima's basement with Rory Attwell (Test Icicles, S.C.U.M, Male Bonding) and Richard Warren (Spiritualized). The music video for 'Honey' was equally low budget, featuring a simple black and white video of the band playing - simple but very punk!
