#620 Arc Iris – Kaleidoscope

‘Kaleidoscope’ is taken from Moon Saloon, the new album which has just been announced by Arc Iris, due for release via Bella Union on August 19. The Providence three-piece have promised a darker edge to the follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut, and the sinister undertones to this track certainly give credence to their claims. “The album is meant to be cathartic,” said lead singer Jocie Adams (formerly of The Low Anthem who, incidentally, are also due to return soon after a long, long lay-off). “There’s an imbalance in everyone’s lives. When there’s often so much going on, we yearn for simplicity.”
