Brooklyn’s Arpline is one of those bands that I heard about when some friends of mine directed the video for “Fold Up” a couple years back. However, in my infinite wisdom I didn’t get into the song back then. Fast forward to their debut album and I am feeling the whole thing, “Fold Up” included. The whole thing bristles withÂ palpableÂ energy and theÂ propulsive guitars and drums are perfect driving summer music.
Their LP Travel Book is out now and available for pay-what-you-want at Bandcamp. Wildly generous pricing aside, the whole album is solid indie rock, churning and dynamic as it builds guitar on drums. “Amplify” is a great example of Arpline’s ability to reign in the speed of “Fold Up” to create a bit of slow burn goodness. The rest of Travel Book is definitely recommended but don’t take my word, stream the whole thing below (“Make it Rain” & “Rope” are other favorites)Â and then download the whole bad boy once you realize it’s all gold.
