Northern Arms - Northern Arms (album stream) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

10 June 2014

PopMatters premieres the self-titled debut by Philadelphia's Northern Arms.
 

There’s an expansive quality to Northern Arms’ patient compositions, with the Philly group’s mid-tempo rock working as a foundation for layers of swaying horns and other lush orchestrated touches. In general, the scale and moods of their self-titled debut recall the National, but on the album’s most intriguing moments, Northern Arms imagine what the Afghan Whigs might’ve been like as a chamber-pop band. Premiering on PopMatters, Northern Arms is out 17 June via the BITBY Recording Co.
