Western Lantern Records presents
Alex Arpino LP Launch
Alex Arpino has had a rich history in Perth music, with a decade fronting dynamic indie pop band The Autumn Isles behind him, he now sets out on a solo escapade with his debut self-titled record. First single Space Ghost (In a Puppet) heralds an open playing field and showcases not only his songwriter prowess but his skills as a producer.
Written and recorded in his studio, Alex Arpino on all instrumental and vocal duties with Malcolm Clark (The Sleepy Jackson) on drums; he has pieced together a selection of songs filled with infectious saturated synth hooks, soulful cinematic moments and punchy sing along anthems that balances the line between new wave, psych-pop and indie rock. A creative force, Alex Arpino has been described as a renaissance man, whether it's producing large-scale urban art murals and delicate portrait work or constructing records, his depth of artistry and attention to detail consistently shines through. He now heads to the stage with a newly formed band and a debut album that celebrates his love of pop music. Alex Arpino is the sum total of his musical experience to date, a love letter to his youth and a bold introduction to his artistry. Available now on beautiful 180g vinyl and on all streaming platforms.
Alex Arpino LP launch, Saturday 1st September at The Sewing Room, Perth. With special guests 6's & 7's and Simone and Gilrfunkle Duo.
