To Distant Selves – Debut album release by Minor Arc
Gritty DIY-dad-rock from slightly older boys next door
Minor arc’s debut LP was released May 10th 2019. The album is entitled “To Distant Selves” and is self-produced and self-published.
To Distant Selves was recorded live over a couple of intense sessions in an improvised studio set-up in the countryside, in November 2018. The album consists of ten songs that are all recent compositions loosely tied together around themes of starting families, dealing with growing older, and other related topics, that have been present for the band members since entering their mid-thirties, becoming fathers etc.
The close to heart subject-matter and spontaneous performance and production-method result in a coherent and intense listening experience for any music and vinyl fan, with a love for the last four decades of rock ‘n’ roll history – or listeners that simply likes a good catchy melody and infectious groove.
Minor Arc is a band from Copenhagen made up of six guys from different backgrounds, spanning Sweden, Spain and Denmark. Minor Arc found it’s line-up around 2013, and has been writing and performing songs consistently since then.
The band members are rock fans who combine their different passions and sources of inspiration into a mixture of melodic indie-rock. As a listener you might hear traces of Nick Cave and Queens of The Stone Age, and perhaps you will also get some nostalgic hints of late eighties post-punk and nineties grunge. Minor Arc is not trying to cut new musical ground or be trendy, but aspire to combine various influences into a melodic cocktail, that will hopefully feel relevant for many years to come.
