Cumbria date for psychedelic rockers

FUNKY folk band Syd Arthur have a headline show in South Cumbria to look forward to next month.


The Canterbury-based quartet are inspired by the sonic pioneers of the late 60s and early 70s, with a psychedelic rock sound that puts them on a par with modern contemporaries like Wolf People, Black Mountain and Tame Impala.

They head to the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal on September 20 and showcase material from their brand-new album, Sound Mirror, and 2012’s debut album, On An On.

Self-produced and engineered by Tom Elmhirst (Arcade Fire, Adele, U2), Sound Mirror is included in MOJO's Albums of 2014 (So Far) poll and the band have been nominated in two categories at this year's Prog Magazine Awards - for breakthrough artist and album of the year.

Syd Arthur’s intricate, high-energy live sets, which to date include Glastonbury and Secret Garden slots, have resulted in a growing following that is burgeoning in Europe and also saw them listed as Band of the Day in The Guardian when they released their first EP in 2010.

Testament to their psychedelic capabilities, they’ve recently been touring with British prog legends Yes. Comprising Liam Magill on lead vocals and guitar, his bassist brother Joel, Raven Bush on violin, keyboards, and mandolin, and Fred Rother on drums, the band have landed support slots with confirmed fan Paul Weller, The Pixies, White Denim and Vampire Weekend.

Tickets for the show in Kendal are available from the venue’s box office.
