Album Review

Given their history with failed music labels and stiff competition from their fellow British counterparts, Arnold has yet to achieve the proper support or recognition that has eluded it for years. Regrettably, the Arnold EP, with its limited release, will most likely not change their status. Following up the lush Bahama, Arnold presents a collection of five self-recorded songs for the in-between-albums EP that shows the band taking another step away from the lo-fi sound of the fantastic Hillside. Arnold continues to flirt instead with the more refined sound that it hinted at with Bahama, where songs like "Climb" and "Oh My" waft like a warm breeze. The Arnold EP follows that path with "You're a Star," "God Knows," and "South," where the airy vocals are so beautifully awash with reverb and harmonies that the lyrics are often indecipherable. These three songs take on a grand quality, as Arnold's uncanny ability to make the most out of every chord change musters emotion at every turn. Bookending these tracks are the EP's opener, "Wild Colonial Girl" (a quick, punk-ish number that may be the fastest song they've recorded) and "Sweet Sweet Sweet Nothing," a song that's repetitive in both name and execution; Arnold's newfound experimentation with programmed drum loops works better as a backbeat on "You're a Star" as opposed to the foundation on which "Sweet Sweet Sweet Nothing" is built. While they may not draw new listeners with this hard-to-find EP, they have whetted their fans' appetite for a fresh batch of new songs to come.

Customer Reviews

Great EP

Arnold were amongst the most languid and relaxed of the British groups of the late '90s, and this EP provides 5 newer, well-crafted songs that show off their dreamy, almost psychadelic, harmony-laden style. I just managed to find their "Hilside" LP, which is hard to find these days, but I also highly recommend.

Great music

A great alternative album for the fans of bands like Coldplay and Bright Eyes.

Love This Band

I've been into this band for some time and have a copy of Hillside and Bahama. Great discs! Thought they were never going to come out with any new material. First time I've seen this EP and slightly disappointed that it only has 5 tracks.
I guess I have to take what I can get. Hope they come out with more!!


Formed: 1996

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The three man, dreamy textured, harmony-laden British band Arnold weaves a blend of pop music that is ultimately singular: The heartfelt lyrics are incisive, the loose playing is lush. Originally called Patio, the band's singer died suddenly but the trio-Mark Saxby, guitar; Phil Payne, bass; Phil Morris, vocals and drums-pressed on and dubbed themselves Arnold after Payne's dog. In 1997, the Creation label fronted them the money for a demo tape and ended up releasing the songs as they were recorded...
