New Blues Rock Discovery: Arc & Stones - Arc & Stones EP
Arc & Stones is a Brooklyn-based rock foursome (Dan Pellarin- Lead Vocals/ Rhythm Guitar/Keys, Ben Cramer- Lead Guitar/Vocals, Eddy Bayes- Bass/Vocals, Joe Doino- Drums) with a 5-song self-titled EP due out February 12. They have a strong rhythm section and Cramer can really wail on the guitar - it's all build around that and Pellarin's soulful voice. Here's the video for "Silence" - give this song time, it really builds and the guitar in the chorus is terrific:
And you can stream the song "Say Goodbye" here... similarly, it builds to a crescendo:
It's recommended if you enjoy the blues-based rock of Warren Haynes, Kings of Leon. or Gary Clark Jr., but this has more acoustic and slow-build components to it.
