Bot03 - Arthur and Martha - Music For Hairproducts
Digitally Released 29th June 2009
Written on kiddies instruments, moogs and old-school drum machines, the innocent pop-sensibility of Arthur and Martha’s second single, ‘Music for Hair Products’, won’t fail to bring a smile in these times of economic doom and gloom.
Preceding the debut album, ‘Navigation’, is the new single ‘Music for Hairproducts’. Knowingly stupid, and archly clever; it’s an anthem for Head and Shoulders and hair-gel adverts worldwide. We defy you not to sing it’s infectious ‘sha-la-la’ chorus next time you’re foaming yourself in the shower.
This EP also includes the reflective, melodica-driven ‘Dance Dance Dance’ and three remixes including one from Hood (Domino Records) offshoot band The Declining Winter. Arthur & Martha debut album ‘Navigation’ is out on Happy Robots on 29th June.
The single has already been played on the Gideon Coe and Nemone shows on BBC 6music and Nemone has featured the track in the Lunchbox section of her website, see more here.
Artrocker have called the single "all good being the earproduct of a generally cool pairing. The title track is all mundance concerns, fake handclaps and futuristic grooves. And said remix of Autovia is blooming marvellous".
Arthur & Martha’s debut single ‘Autovia’ received rave reviews from the likes of the NME and Artrocker and multiple Radio 1 plays from Huw Stephens. The band built on this success, gigging with the likes of Lo-Fi Fnk, Grovesnor, Plastic Operator, Sportsday Megaphone and others. The band are flattered to have been compared to Kraftwerk, Add N to X, Pet Shop Boys and Soft Cell.
Arthur and Martha will be playing Meat Raffle at Catch on the 27th June, further shows to be announced imminently.
Even the brightest Japanese scientist couldn’t make robots as happy as this release makes us. We hope this record will make you a very happy robot too!
