Noise. Disconnected notes. Screamy organs. Sloopy strings. Pop flashes. Words told in a ironic way. Naked sounds. A musician terrible naïve. Arnold Layne (the alter ego that hides the identity of the musician), finds in Pop music from 70’s and 80’s a spark for his creation, adding distortion, abstraction and a non-conventional production. Behind his shy and fragile voice, there are a whole set of stories that dive us into an abstract reality presented by the 5 themes of his debut EP untitled Hunting Bears With a Tiny Fork, labeled by merzbau’s netlabel.

01. human atrocities
02. collapse
