London group Arthur Beatrice have been gaining popularity over the course of this past year ever since three original tracks were posted to their Soundcloud page. This growing following was solidified by their Carter EP which was equal parts calming as it was exciting. Now they have a debut LP Working Out due early February 2014 via their own label OAR and Polydor Records, which will feature “Grand Union” , “Carter (Uncut)”, and newly released “Midland”.
“Midland” was previously released a few months back, but has since been taken down and reworked. Today we hear the finished product and they prove to us they can still effortlessly mix exposed emotion with a danceable beat. “All I want is to be warm and home, and well known… / Purge me now, cleanse my skull from all the things that I’ve been told” lead singer Ella Girardot professes as you bop along – and by the time she’s screaming “I’ll never grow, I’ll never grow…” the songs exploded into a full on dance track.
Check out the tracklist for Workout along with the exciting new single below.
