UK Artist of the Week: The Blood Arm

The Blood Arm burst onto the scene back in 2003. Hailing from LA, they quickly rose to prominence, riding the mid naughties wave of indie bands who found fame around that time—bands like Franz Ferdinand, Hot Hot Heat, and Maxïmo Park. Ten years and four albums later, half the band have moved to Berlin and are still going strong.

Infinite Nights is the band’s latest album and shows a different shade to the band with half the songs being quieter, more introspective, and reflective. There’s still the nod to the old with “Midnight Moan,” for example, but this album could be a signifier of change and it’ll be interesting to see where their journey takes them next.

Although The Blood Arm have taken time out now and again to move and change direction, they show no signs of slowing down. They’re definitely going to go down in music history as one of those bands who were sorely overlooked but with a body of interesting, quality work.
