Wooden Arms are an Alternative, Chamber Music, band from the UK featuring choral elements and a distinctive yet delicate blend of classical instrumentation meets modern melody.
"… when in fact the music this Norwich band make can be genuinely thrilling. The album begins with December,
a track they accurately describe as a "melancholic mariachi march with a trip-hop beat“. Portishead or Sigur Rós fans,
it might be time to listen in." - The Sunday Times
“Wooden Arms have emerged with a brooding and delicate classical-folk song that is smothered in subtlety, tension and lush reverb.” - The 405
“The band mix delicate piano with luscious strings and trip-hop inspired percussion to create something quite beautiful.” - Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music)
"(Chariclia) A most beautiful piece of music... Somewhat reminiscent of a Winged Victory for the Sullen with that sort of emotion and tone to it... Absolutely bewitching." - Simon Raymonde (Bella Union)
Wooden Arms have released an album entitled “Tide” with Butterfly Collectors on September the 12th 2014 in Europe and the 6th of October in the UK. The six track record is available on both Vinyl and CD format as well as digital download. The record features a rich orchestral timbre exemplified by Cello, Violin and Brass instrumentation mixed with contemporary percussive beats and ambient samples.
The album was recorded and produced by Wild Beasts and ILIKETRAINS engineer David Pye.
