A sighting of two Arth & Arth’s in the same habitat, a rare occurrence due the migratory habits of the foul.
Arth & Arth was born out of two brothers living separate lives, in different countries, who wanted to find an activity to spend time together.

The band is a mix of obvious individual styles and personalities formed in their youth, in a polluted backwater in the North-east of England. They grew up listening to ELO, Carter USM, Roxy Music, Prince and Tomita. Later fleeing the nest, they also lived together in Leeds listening to Boards of Canada, Bigg Jus, The Tindersticks, Nine Inch Nails and Portishead. Which has lead to a kaleidoscope of different musical influences. But their sound is rooted in the best traditions of British music.

The first album Arthur came together via sharing song sketches over Google Drive which were developed individually to create contrasting and complimentary music. Like some Exquisite Corpse musical game, the excitement of hearing what the other had changed and added to a track kept the project really fun. They would FaceTime and listen to the track together with a count down of "3, 2, 1, now".

Logan is 36, and lives in Manchester (UK). He sings, plays guitar, bass, programs drums and strings. He works in the audio industry selling speakers and microphones. He also enjoys snowboarding at the local dome in Manchester.

James is 43 and lives in Barcelona (Spain). He sings, plays the piano, programs the synths and creates beats. He works as a book cover designer, writes short fiction and is currently emboiled in a secret art project with the Colombians.

They are currently working on their second album provisionally titled Bernard.

No rest for the wicked.
