The time has come once again to roll up your trousers and dip your toes into the sonically-diverse pool of Arliston’s experimental soundscape. Since their first installment of their hype-worthy EP “Centre” in October, listeners from every corner of the UK have been catapulted straight back into the world of digital-pop, and are thirsty for more. To keep their fans firmly on their feet, Arliston drop their new single “Mountaineer”, offering a surprising yet soul-warming addition to their plethora of genre-blending sound. The piano ballad, which features delicate soothing vocals which transcend into a building production of electric drum pads, ear-worming synths and stirring beats, is sure to have us all staring out of a train window into the abyss – plummeting us into our feels.

Talking about the inspiration that created “Mountaineer”, the trio tell us, “’Mountaineer’ was one of those rare little gems where everything just fell into place immediately. There was very little agonizing over parts, or re-recording. It was such a wonderful experience to be in a state of flow, and just ‘do’ rather than overthink. We’re so happy with the result. This song is about facing the moment, that decision of whether to save yourself by cutting someone loose, and the guilt you feel for making that decision. I will admit, I often feel a bit lost with too much experimentation, maybe even a bit anxious, that I may be losing my way. But here, Arliston masterfully pushes the listener into new and refreshingly unexpected realms of sonic combinations while keeping anchored in a strong, stabilizing percussion.”

Proving that three is most definitely not a crowd, Jordi, Jack and George artfully combine their alternative backgrounds and music to charge into unknown climbs, taking back with them the perfect playlist for every mood.
