AroarA – “#4″ (Stereogum Premiere)
Andrew Whiteman is better known for his work in Broken Social Scene, and Ariel Engle has found success touring in Feist’s band, but together as AroarA they’ve crafted something all their own. Soon they’ll release In the Pines, their full-length, inspired by a poetry collection from avant-garde writer Alice Notley. All the tracks are titled with numbers, and now you can hear “#4,” which marries some experimental structure and vocal manipulation with the sort of performative intensity of a folk song. Listen to it below and look for the album later this summer.
In The Pines is out 8/19 via Club Roll Music.
