Arliston unleash their brand of addictive experimental digital-pop in emotive piano ballad ‘Mountaineer’
Switching the mood and showcasing contrasts in their music, Arliston return with new ballad ‘Mountaineer‘.
Receiving previous praise from CLASH, Wonderland and Kaltbult to name a few outlets, Arliston are the real deal.
The song leads with an unravelling and characterful piano line that wists you away, before bringing you back with what isn’t the melody line you would expect to follow.
Symbolising their individualistic approach to their craft, the octave covered vocal is soft and delicate, in what is a song all about the point of no return.
Speaking more on ‘Mountaineer’ and what it means, Arliston explains, “Mountaineer was one of those rare little gems where everything just fell into place immediately.
There was very little agonizing over parts, or re-recording. It was such a wonderful experience to be in a state of flow, and just ‘do’ rather than overthink. We’re so happy with the result
This song is about facing the moment, that decision of whether to save yourself by cutting someone loose, and the guilt you feel for making that decision.
I will admit, I often feel a bit lost with too much experimentation, maybe even a bit anxious, that I may be losing my way.
But here, Arliston masterfully pushes the listener into new and refreshingly unexpected realms of sonic combinations while keeping anchored in a strong, stabilizing percussion.”
The first two tracks have built excitement to what is going to be an astounding forthcoming EP from Arliston.
