A fresh artist hailing from the British Island is Arrial, 
whose demo arrived just about 6 weeks ago. His first release 
for Autoplate consists of three fine classic guitar songs 
mixed up with sparse, yet playful and effective electronic 

“I got my first spanish guitar at the age of 5. No idea what 
prompted me to want it but it's been my lifelong companion 
ever since - even through the years that it spent in its case 
gathering dust in the corner of an unused room while I fiddled 
around with synths, samplers and all that gubbins.  Eventually 
I returned to where I started - the sounds of the spanish 
guitar. Realising that you don't need to spend hours looking 
for a brand new sound in the dark recesses of some complex 
sound module was an epiphany, and I haven't looked back since. 
I began recording guitar tunes, layer them, loop them, feed 
them through malfunctioning effects units and mix them up with 
various beats. There's no sound more beautiful than a freshly 
strung spanish guitar. I love to play the spanish guitar, I 
love to dance, I live in the city but dream of the sky and of 
the sea. I am always striving for the feeling of stillness that 
you get when you are underwater or when you are standing at the 
edge of a mountain. You can hear this in the tracks mixed in 
with the tension and claustrophobia inherent in living and 
working in a hyper-urban environment.” 

“Mar, Revisitar is a reworking of one of my first ever tracks - 
the first time I realised that you could write a good tune just 
with a classical guitar and a drum machine. It's completely pure 
without a single treatment of the guitar sounds at all. Elements 
of Chicane, Globo and Happy Mondays intertwine to evoke the 
insistent, gentle lapping of the sea at your feet in the night-

“Blank Holiday Monday originated in a melody I love to play and 
often makes my partner melt. It's about feeling dazed after a 
particularly heavy night and lying on a couch, or better still 
in a hammock, watching the day go by. When just thinking about 
the night before makes you smile and gives you palpitations and 
you crave just a few mouthfuls of curry. And then have to lie 
back down again.“

“Shiver. That shivering sound comes from my mixer feeding back - 
maybe it's warning me off doing any more tracks verging on being 
rock ballads. Or maybe it was as excited by the melody as I am. 
Maybe the shiver is what happens when you are waiting for the 
night bus home. Or maybe it's that sigh and sudden rush of 
goosepimples you get when your lover strokes you with a feather.“
