Limited CD copies of "All Through The Sinew" available NOW!

Our album is now available in a limited CD format! These are limited edition CDR copies with hand made packaging, which means you get : hand numbered recycled card sleeves with individual Instax instant photo covers (every copy is different), plus lyric sheet and download code for the "In Mono" EP. We think they look pretty sweet!

You can buy these from our Bandcamp page, from Resident in Brighton, or off us at shows .

Ruff Stuff #2

We're doing our free low-tech party night "Ruff Stuff" again. Last time was super fun so we thought we'd do another one. As with last time it'll be free entry, and have us and other rad bands playing the lovely small space upstairs at Fitzherberts in Brighton.

This time we'll have Speak Galactic, Cousin and Cheat Sheet playing. All awesome people in awesome bands.

There's a facebook event for it here if you wanna join up to it... it's gonna be fun!

Life post-Bizarro World

Hey there, it's been a while! We've been busy though, over the past few months we've finished all the mixing and mastering of our debut album, which we are super excited about. There will be music from that up for everyone to hear very soon. We've also been working on more new songs, and spent a lot of time working out or set of Beach Boys songs, which we played at Bizarro World in Brighton last week. It was such a fun night, and we've got a bit of footage of it too! Check out our version of Sloop John B...

Stay tuned for the ALBUM!!

Our next show is gonna be a doozy I tell ya. We're gonna be playing BIZARRO WORLD on March 31st at Fitzherbert's in Brighton, which is a special night of bands playing sets in the guise of other bands... so basically this means we will be playing as The Beach Boys, doing a set of Beach Boys songs, but in our own Soft Arrows style. The bill also has Negative Pegasus as Daft Punk, Cinemascopes as Black Sabbath and Us Baby Bear Bones as Weezer. It's going to be sweet.

Monday, 9 January 2012


It's 2012. The year when the world either ends, or doesn't. A bit like every year then.

Ok, so we have a few things on our 2012 agenda. Number one is that we are playing "Sea Monsters 2" on January 24th. For those who don't know, Sea Monsters is a week when all the best bands in Brighton play shows at The Prince Albert. We're very happy to be playing this and it leads us on to point two. We will have a new track called 'The Arcade Grave' coming out on a double CD compilation of all the bands playing Sea Monsters. This will be available at the shows and then available everywhere some time after the shows. Super cool! Then finally, point three. While recording the track for the comp we went and recorded a whole album. We did all the guitars and drums in a day and have been doing vocals between Christmas and New Year and now I think they are all done. So know what? Mixing, mastering and then letting everyone get to hear it. We're really happy with how it is shaping up and can't wait to get it all finished. So more news on that soon, but until then, get tickets for Sea Monsters.
