Indie-folk ensemble St.Arnaud comes to Clwb Ifor Bach this October to perform tracks from his latest release: Love And The Front Lawn – a tour-de-force of fun-loving melodies overlaying themes of death and anxiety.
Edmonton indie-pop songster St.Arnaud is a little bit of everywhere to everyone. Working alongside his brother and fellow creative, the YouTube animator GingerPale, St.Arnaud found a loving home on YouTube and Spotify with legions of eager listeners. His debut album was a DIY tour-de-force of fun-loving melodies overlaying themes of death, loss, and anxiety. St.Arnaud has played with Basia Bulat, Reuben and the Dark, and Lucy Rose among countless others and has performed at stages across the world including at Reeperbahn, New Colossus Festival, FOCUS Wales, and Tallinn Music Week. St.Arnaud has been featured on Exclaim!, BeatRoute Magazine, Indie 88, Earmilk, Dusty Organ and more. “Catching Flies” has already made it to the CBC Radio 3 top 10.
His new album, 2022’s Love And The Front Lawn (Fierce Panda Canada) continues the sad lyrics/happy melodies framework but with a new instrumental palette. Moving through self-doubt, loving, leaving and being left, and anxiously wasting away through some of the best years of one’s life, Love and the Front Lawn is the catchiest self-reminder to be kinder to yourself, to let go and try to enjoy yourself. Working with producer Graham Lessard (Basia Bulat, Timber Timbre) brings out the texture and dark corners of the songs through slippery slide guitar and keyboards throughout.
