The Arundel project began in 2010 with a solo laptop producer exploring the diversity of atmospheric electronic music, but always with a link to live organic instrumentation. 4 years later, Arundel’s full potential has been realised with a new 5-piece band performing truly grandiose rock-tronic pop music, videos, artwork, & visuals.
The new EP “Channels,” released May 16, explores a more accessible sound to previous releases yet still within the framework of electronic music artistry. Each song experiments around a cohesive core which ebbs and flows across the whole EP highlighting the pop sensibilities of this new Arundel format.

"Immerse yourself in the electronic new world order with the sights and sounds of the electro pop underground."
“Arundel has been sounding great on FBi. Support has come from across many different shows, we're digging it.”
Dan Zilber – FBi Radio
"Layer upon layer of synth, percussion and sampling is pieced together to create a distinctive soundscape. This is a track that weights many components perfectly, favoring neither vocals or instrumentation."
“Arundel’s trip-hop leanings were on full display here [Chimpanzee], while the female vocals provided a thoughtful moment of soul, offsetting the industrial beats and thick basslines that essentially drove the song. Definitely a band worth checking out.”
"It's a bit Gotye, a bit Royksopp and 100% delicious."

Straddling the boundaries between trip-hop, rock, pop, & atmospherica, Arundel is a powerhouse in the live performance area. With multiple singers, custom visuals for each song, and a musical-chairs effect as performers rotate instruments through-out the set, this really is a exciting band to see live. There's a lot of depth & to enjoy here as the band blends audio, visual, & visceral elements into a seemless blend of future sounds.
