Natural Habitat: Exclusive Orange + Green Splatter Vinyl LP
Release date: 7 July, 2023
Born out of red-brick terraced basements and house parties of Leeds, Treeboy and Arc’s abrasive art-post-punk packs a punchy, tight, repetitive musical backdrop, setting the scene for tales of disillusionment, loss, health (or lack of), and an occasional obsession with Bob Mortimer. The band pit pop songs against avant-garde kraut-punk noise to see which elements come out on top.
A DIY ethos is at the core of the band. After moving into an LS6 terraced house together, they crammed into their damp basement along with all their equipment, sound-proofed the walls with empty egg boxes and any carpet remnants they could get their hands, creating their own space to forge their sound. To expand sonically, they employed Matt Peel (Eagulls, WH Lung) to record their debut at Nave Studios in Leeds.
These Leeds roots are important to Treeboy and Arc. It’s their city, a city they are proud to be from, and proud to represent. They signed to Leeds based Clue Records (Bored At My Grandmas House, The Wedding Present, YOWL), who recently announced their partnership with EMI as part of EMI North, and are gearing up for the release of their debut album Natural Habitat, available on limited edition indie only orange vinyl with green swirl.
