Arthur Beatrice - Working Out

Fronted by dual vocalists Orlando Leopard and Ella Girardot and, yes, monikered with a twist on the name of the late Golden Girls actress, DC RADAR vets Arthur Beatrice fashion headphone music enhanced by the private, pin-drop-quiet surroundings of the studio -- you can practically feel the atmospheric spaces between the notes. What we've described as "a shining, shimmering example of coolly detached, progressive -- and distinctly British -- indie pop" gets a full-length roll with self-produced debut album Working Out (February 4, Harvest). Self-described as "written and recorded in our own space," the elegant and carefully measured music is a fine mix of the cerebral and sensual, particularly the latter when the sultry Girardot takes the microphone. Click through to stream the Leonard-fronted "Grand Union" and watch the fine in-the-studio video for "Midland." Stream the full album here.
