** WOODEN ARMS WRAP THINGS UP WITH THE PANDA! **
** ‘TRICK OF THE LIGHT’ ALBUM’ COMING IN THE SPRING! **

So fierce pandais turning 23 years old. What better time then to demonstrate the youthful vigour lurking beneath those ever-greying whiskers by announcing a brrrrrand new signing?

Say hello then to Wooden Arms, “a genre-fluid contemporary quintet” from Norwich / London who draw from the many hearty assets of Alternative, Classical, and Trip-Hop music. Enthused with the rhythmic sensibilities of Portishead, blended with the ethereal melodies of Sigur Ros, Wooden Arms' first full length album ‘Trick of the Light’, due for release on May 12th 2017, sees the band shift to a more contemporary palette, with their earnest combination of crushed melody and soaring orchestrations aiming for ever-higher heights.

All of which can be heard on ‘Burial’, the current first single to be taken from that there forthcoming album. ‘Burial’ lulls the listener into a somniferous sombre lullaby in its first section, a peace which is broken by a pulsating trip-hop heart-beat bassline, something which continues to ramp up a sense of dread until finally it culminates in a furious, cacophonous clattering of sound, as you can smell here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzx92HfipCQ
