First introduced in 2014 the English alt-rock creator Art Block is due to release the slightly delayed EP Bordeline on the 4th.
The penultimate of the four tracks Don’t Call My Name glides through the room with an elegance and poise that captures the attention. One feels oneself involuntary reaching for Ball-Gown or Dinner-Jacket to accompany the four / three waltz which is firmly led by Art Block and you are left to feel safe in his embrace.
Borderline (available on bandcamp) lives and breathes by instrumentation which lays in subdued back drop as the duet of vocal by Chelsea Turnbull and Art sashay the audience with their pitch-perfect and emotionally connective tissue carrying the listener far further than the compositions.
It is the ability of Art block to take the audience far beyond the speakers into an emotional reciprocity that marks the out-put as being far more than the sum of the parts.
Art is another musician who finds I am not the easiest music journalist to deal with and I thank him, not just for his persistence but far more, for his ability to take me on a journey which I hope will not end before I am gone.
