Syd Arthur To Release New Album 'Sound Mirror' Out In The Us April 22nd 2014 Out In The UK June 2nd

Harvest Records is excited to announce that Canterbury, England, psychedelic rock quartet Syd Arthur will release their new album Sound Mirror on April 22 (US) and June 2 (UK). Sound Mirror is the follow up to the November 2013 re-release of their first album On An On. The band has also confirmed Los Angeles and New York shows for February, as well as performances at SXSW and Coachella. 
 
Hailed by MOJO as "Canterbury's dazzling new sons," Syd Arthur offer a strikingly fresh take on 21st century psychedelia, their exceptional approach born of prodigious musicianship, elemental songcraft, and an unabashed spirit of adventure. Released in the UK in 2012, On An On swings as much as it swirls, with songs like first single "Ode To The Summer," whose video was premiered in America by Stereogum, fusing kosmische jazz and expansive grooves with arcadian instrumentation, intricate time signatures, and lyrical, free-spirited melodies to conjure a rather potent and particular musical magic. On An On justly earned Syd Arthur reams of UK attention, with critical acclaim and increasingly bigger gigs, including recent tours alongside White Denim and confirmed fan Paul Weller.
 
Comprising Liam Magill (lead vocals, guitar), his brother Joel (bass, vocals), Raven Bush (violin, keyboards, mandolin), and Fred Rother (drums), the band first came together early in the new millennium, initially to perform at the outdoor gatherings presented by the brothers Magill in what Liam describes as "really interesting places" around their native Canterbury.
 
Nourished by a steady diet of jazz and funk, folk and world music, the band explored the myriad possibilities of improvisation, impelling themselves and their one-of-a-kind vision towards heretofore-uncharted territory.
 
Dubbing themselves Syd Arthur - a name that conjures at minimum three of psychedelia's most magical monikers - the band looked for new ways to move forward, educating themselves to recording's vast possibilities by building their own Wicker Studios in 2009. Conveniently located on the edge of South East London, Wicker allowed Syd Arthur to assimilate the dark arts of production, engineering, and mixing, offering them innumerable new routes for their autonomous musical activity.
