Arliston have been paving their own path since forming together back in 2018, and have since found an even better way to elongate and revolutionise their already unique and distinctive sound. Their debut EP ‘The Ground Might Disappear’ feels like a culmination of everything the trio has built so far, and it is an epic body of work. First single ‘Centre’ released at the end of last year is the perfect introduction into their sultry and warm textures that have been expertly laid out by the collective.
‘Mountaineer’ is a beautifully presented and structurally brilliant masterpiece. Emotive piano lines fill the air in this ballad, where Arliston’s songwriting really comes to the fore in a highly melancholic song that lightly shows their contrast in production too.
Lead single ‘Camomile’ is the pick of the bunch, and rightly so. Channelling all the energy they have created in this EP, ‘Camomile’ is a soft builder full of ethereal vocals and sumptuous percussion elements. If you are a fan of Big Red Machine, you will absolutely love Camomile.
And the EP draws to a close with the title track, and it’s a fitting ending to what is going to be a hugely successful release for the London based group. Arliston have certainly outdone themselves and more here, and it will be amazing to see they replicate this sound in a live space. Having seen huge success on Spotify already, expect to see ‘The Ground Might Disappear’ falling upon one of your playlists very soon.
