Exclusive Listen: Arborist “Dark Stream”

“Dark Stream” is the new single from Northern Ireland’s Arborist which we’ve got an exclusive stream for you to listen to here at UK. Beginning with a stark, quasi-funeral horn it launches in to a haunting and affecting song, awash with gorgeous melodies and arrangements that showcase Mark McCambridge’s rich vocals and thoughtful songwriting. The track is taken from Home Burial, Arborist’s debut (due out on 11 November via Kirkinrola Records), with songs dealing with death, ageing and family.

You can catch the band live at the following dates later this month:

Fri 28th Oct –  Laverys, Belfast
Sat 29th Oct – Sandinos, Derry
Fri 4th Nov – The Betsey Trotwood, London
