Treeboy & Arc


Having become known as one of the most exciting up & coming bands in Yorkshire, Leeds based Treeboy & Arc have kick-started 2019 making some noise. February saw them release new single ‘Plastic Front’ via UK label Come Play With Me and Japanese label Call And Response. Since then, Treeboy & Arc have worked with the highly prestigious Dan Carey on latest single ‘Concept’, which was released by Dan’s own label Speedy Wunderground. Both singles received high praises from many, including BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 1 and Amazing radio who made both tracks their Single Of The Week.

 Their live shows picked up lots of attention, leading to them being chosen as tour support for Crows (Balley Records). Now consistently performing to packed-out rooms and showcasing new material at almost every gig, James Kay, Ben Morgan, George Townend, Isaac Turner and Sammy Robinson seem to be moving at an uncontrollable pace and taking no prisoners along the way. Their influences musically are Post Punk & New Wave from the 1980’s, however their main influence as a band is their surroundings – The North of England – The situation and scenarios that they witness each day make a large impact on their lyrics, their sound and their visual identity.

“Dark post-punk delivered with frenetic, adolescent energy...” – Clash Magazine

“…It’s the sound of a band simultaneously treading new ground and never having looked more sure of themselves.” – DIY Magazine

“Anyone familiar with the Leeds music scene will have no doubt heard of Treeboy & Arc. With their idiosyncratic sound, that fuses catchy yet heavy post-punk with pulsating synths, these Yorkshire boys have already caught the attention of none other than Kagoule and modern punk heroes Parquet Courts.” – So Young 

“Treeboy & Arc continue to prove themselves to be a leading light out of the north” – So Young

“Treeboy & Arc are my everything!” – Shell Zenner
