White Arrows at Electric Owl Tuesday night in Vancouver.
The Los Angeles band is on tour for its sophomore album, In Bardo. Spin said, “The new album combines wire-y guitar (“Get By”), slinky electronics (“Scream”), sunny grooves (“We Can’t Ever Die”), and powerful percussion (“I Want a Taste”) to gauzy, entrancing effect.”
Singles from the album include “Nobody Cares”. White Arrows was Los Angeles’ radio station Alt 98.7 Artist In Residence for the month of September.
According to a press release for the band, “‘Bardo’ is defined as a transitional state of being, the phase of existence between death and rebirth. It marks the end of one thing and the beginning of another. It represents an evolution, which is why the title of White Arrows’ second album, In Bardo, is so appropriate. The Los Angeles indie-rock band found themselves in a new plane of being after touring extensively since their inception, hitting the road with bands such as Cults, White Denim, The Naked and Famous, and performing at festivals like Coachella and Sasquatch. The band finally grounded themselves enough to create a cohesive work that reflected the musicians’ present mindset.”
