Furious Finite defies genres, incorporating elements of folk, grunge, rock and psychedelia. Reared in the wilds of St. Davids in Pembrokeshire, Little Arrow bottle up the spirit of their natural surroundings and transpose it into an edgy, grunge folk cocktail. Lead singer, William Hughes, describes the album as “concerning the human spirit, the pains and great joys of human relationships as we gain and lose others throughout our life. It also expresses solace, which can be found through immersion into the outside environment. But most importantly it expresses collaboration between five good friends sharing high and lows and dancing in each other’s heads.”
Little Arrow were formed in 2011 by William Hughes. His acoustic templates have since been broadened with the arrival of Dan Messore (guitar), Ben Sharpe (guitar), Callum Duggan (bass) and Richard Chitty (drums). The resultant sound is open, borne of the folk tradition which is reflected in their suitably chosen band name Little Arrow. Their name was born from three members of the band embarking on an adventure through Europe and eventually ending up meeting a baker named Moon. The three spent their evening with Moon who supplied them with a feast fit for kings. When morning came, Moon had disappeared and left nothing but a pile of three loaves waiting on a square scarf and in the sand, spelt out in rocks next to it, was the phrase “Live your life true like a little arrow”. The rest, as they say, is history.
Furious Finite is released via Bubblewrap Collective and is available to buy digitally on iTunes.
