There is is something quite familiar about Arthur Imperial’s voice…Surfer Blood? Animal Collective? I just haven’t been able to figure it out since I stumbled upon this fun slice of surf pop last week from Toronto’s Art Imperial.
After getting some blog buzz last year with his group Strider Hero, Arthur decided to transport himself from his cold suburban surroundings and go tropical. Two weeks later, The Surf Suburban EP had been written and recorded in his mom’s basement. While the whole EP stands up on first listen, the non-stop pulse of standout The Inbetweener is the perfect accompaniment to yet-to-be-enjoyed high energy summer nights.
The EP will become available on bandcamp on 5/14 but until then you can download The Inbetweener exclusively here! Thanks Art Imperial!!
