Forming in 2012 The Art Club have taken the fast lane into the music industry. With their post-punk sound and nasal vocal resonating dreamy romantic lyrics, they seem to recreate halcyon days, transporting you to a lazy summer’s afternoon.
Check out their single, Lets Start Again and keep your ears open as some new tracks are on their way. And by way of an introduction, here Abi Gillibrand chats to guitarist and vocalist David Murdoch.
Louder Than War: Can you tell us a little bit about the band’s history?
I started it in my bedroom in Morecambe and from there recruited friends to join.
You give a post-punk, raw feel to your songs, is this how you originally set out to sound like?
Kind of, I think the sound has changed a lot since starting the band. Now they have much more of an edge especially live.
What is your creative process when writing songs?
A lot of the songs are based on personal experiences so lyrically go from them; I never just try and write a song they mostly come to me whilst on a bus or shopping?!…
