about

Imagine it’s 1985 again, when listening to progressive alternative music meant hearing bands like New Order, OMD and Depeche Mode. Moody synth-pop groups dominated the imports from Europe, and in the American midwest a relatively unknown band was traversing the same territory. Quietly following their own course of musical exploration, The Arms Of Someone New created music that was mellowly melodic, somewhere between pop/rock and New Romantic. Equipped with simple synths, drum machines, guitars and vocals, The Arms Of Someone New provided an American take on what we now fondly look back on as the classic “eighties” sound – a sound undergoing renewed interest and resurgence.

Press excerpts from back in the day

“Mood songs for a depressed cityscape.”

“Ringing, haunting guitars, lush waves of keyboard, tightrope bass, occasional stirring sax. Old photographs, misty eyes, sitting by the fire and waving goodbye.”

“Like Syd Barrett had a few kids during his retreat acid-binge and The Arms of Someone New were the children.”

This reissues features enhanced album artwork and bonus tracks unavailable on the original release.
