Arco

Arco are a British band noted for unusually slow, quiet, poetic music: a gig review in national newspaper The Guardian suggested "an hour inarco's company is the aural equivalent of a day in a flotation tank".Similarly, a review in Q, a UK monthly music magazine, described first albumComing To Terms as "the aural equivalent of a human being pausing for thought as the world speeds on around".

Arco are a British band noted for unusually slow, quiet, poetic music: a gig review in national newspaper The Guardian suggested "an hour inarco's company is the aural equivalent of a day in a flotation tank".Similarly, a review in Q, a UK monthly music magazine, described first albumComing To Terms as "the aural equivalent of a human being pausing for thought as the world speeds on around".

Their track "Lullaby" was featured on the soundtrack album of Californication on the US Showtime network.In Korea two tracks, "Alien" and"Perfect World", were featured on the soundtrack album of network drama series Coffee Prince, while "Lullaby" featured in an advertisement forSky mobile phones, and "Babies Eyes" in an advert for "17" tea. "Alien" also appeared in the soundtrack of the film Turning Green, and in thesoundtrack of One Tree Hill (series 1, episode 15).

In 2005 they played a tour of the US west coast, including gigs at Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.

Their most recent, and apparently final album, Yield, was released via Pastel in Korea in 2010.

The closet bands i would lump Arco into a group of would be Red house painters, Low, Elliot Smith and idaho although having said that, youwould be out of luck to find a band very similar to Acro. « hide
