Hailing from the South East of London; Arthur Walwin has been building a name for himself with his You Tube covers and original material. This new release sees Arthur taking on the role of both artist and producer – giving him the freedom to incorporate many of his eclectic influences into his music. The EP is a departure from his band PAIGE, however there are still shades of piano-led US Pop/Rock in his songs.
The songs are reminiscent of early Mayday Parade and some of the slower songs by artists like You Me At Six and Paramore. The majority of ´For One More Night´ was recorded at Arthur´s home studio in Essex, however the track ´All For You´ started in one of the drum rooms at his Uni (The Academy of Contemporary Music) and ended up at Matt O´Grady´s studio in Woking (You Me At Six, Deaf Havana, Almost Monday, etc) The songs on the EP were written autobiographically about the relationships in Arthur´s life and read like a narrative or diary. The lyrics were often posted on his Tumblr way before the songs they would eventually belong to took proper form. Musically, the songs are softer and more delicate than anything he´s done in the past – in order to accompany the deeply personal lyrical content.
Arthur has recently put a band together so will soon be seen on stages showcasing his solo talents.
