LISTEN / Wild Eastern Arches / Seven Day Itch

Salamander Sun

South African band Wild Eastern Arches have released the first single – Seven Day Itch – off their enchanting sophomore release entitled Salamander Sun.

The single is an apt introduction to the rest of the upcoming album, revealing a band more sure of themselves as individual musicians and as a unit, a fact which is increasingly apparent with each live show.

The album also serves as a triumph for independent artists in South Africa, with the band recording the album with the the oracle of the local independent recording scene, Johnny Tex, assisted by the growing talent of his protege Warren Ellis, both of The Future Primitives. The artwork for the album is a fresh design by the band’s drummer, Jack Walsh, once again proving that DIY is the the only way forward for the modern day free artist.
