There's something slightly out of time about Syd Arthur.
The four piece hail from Canterbury, an area closely linked to psychedelia thanks to the efforts of Soft Machine, Kevin Ayers et al.
Yet there's a blues edge, a directness which contrasts to their fluid rhythm section. New single 'Autograph' drops on October 6th, via resurrected imprint Harvest Records - the original run of which catered for afore-mentioned troudabour Kevin Ayers.
With flecks of acoustic folk in their songwriting, 'Autograph' is perfect for the gentle decline of summer and the introduction of autumn. Bullion has stepped in on remix duties, adding swathes of electronics to the mix.
It's a nice re-work, respectful to the original but with a desire to try something new.
