We’ve got another great band for you guys to discover. Based out of Brooklyn, New York, we bring you Arc & Stones. This four member indie rock group consists of Dan Pellarin, Ben Cramer, Eddy Bayes, and Joe Doino. Describing themselves as a rock band with a hint of the blues, Arc & Stones have just released their self-titled EP. With a sound similar to that of The Black Keys and The Raconteurs, it’s no wonder they’re gaining so much buzz. Now on tour supporting the Arc & Stones EP, fans can get a glimpse of what these guys have to offer by checking out their most recently released music videos.
1 - Silence (4:34) 2 - Say Goodbye (3:47) 3 - Let Me Down (4:42) 4 - She's Mine (3:35) 5 - Rise (4:09)
I’m a sucker for a guy who can sing and an acoustic version of any song. So if you’re trying to decide what to listen to first, try this one. “Let Me Down” features the crisp vocals of Dan Pellarin and a heartfelt sound that fits perfectly with the lyrics.
Another of our favorites would have to be “Control.” This track starts off simple and beautiful and builds to integrate that rock sound you’re waiting for.
As I’m sitting here listening, I’ve decided to change my mind on my favorite song out of the group of tracks. “Say Goodbye” has definitely taken over my favorite title. I think this one far surpasses the others and I can 100% picture this on the radio tomorrow. Or today if I’m hoping for things. The vocals are incredibly on point and I’ve fallen in love with them. The production on this one, in my opinion, is on another level and it shows.
Plus, the video is awesome. Check it out:
