"Arctic – Live Review – The Globe Theatre, Fortitude Valley"

NickH - 18.06.10, www.shotofrock.com.au
It was far from frosty as Arctic took to the stage.....nah, just kidding. I haven’t stooped to that level yet. What I HAVE been doing is trying to think of a way to say “Arctic warmed up” without sounding like I’m making a bad joke. So I decided to do it this way: ARCTIC. First up. Awesome stuff.
It was a decent sized crowd (for early on a Friday) keen for a taste of some fine local rock -and Arctic got the night off to a great start. Their mix of catchy hooks, big guitars and harmonised vocals really are impossible not to like, and sitting back on one of The Globe’s super-comfy couches with a frosty cold beer it was exactly what I needed.
Despite the soft-rock stylings of most of Arctic’s songs, their live show hints at a darker inspiration lurking under the Summery tunes -with the occasional heavy guitar and rough vocals seeping in.
It's the sound of lying in the afternoon sun and gently daydreaming....of devil horns and mosh-pits! Seriously though, it was a good tight set with the recently added lead-guitar fitting perfectly in the mix.
Arctic: unpretentious, easy to like, and really....heh....cool. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.

Bio

Since their formation Arctic, a four-piece rock outfit from Brisbane, has gone from strength to strength: aggressively defining their unique and original sound using their own creative integrity.

By mixing dual guitar melodies with a heavy edge accompanied by catchy vocals, Arctic has something for the whole family.??

Arctic has completely mastered that heavy progressive sound with the added bonus of a vocal hook that grabs the attention of listeners. Working on the EP with the guys was fun... creative...I can see that these guys will continue to push their ideas to new heights and become a leading Australian band. Clint Vincent, Producer, Vinjames Music Production??

Clint Vincent of Vinjames Music Productions (Melodyssey), co-produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered Arctic’s forthcoming debut EP. The EP consists of six carefully considered tracks and will be released in the very near future.

Arctic has shared the stage with leading alternative rock artists including Dead Letter Circus, MM9, Electric Horse, Thousand Needles in Red, Melodyssey and Rook. This has all been achieved without the luxury of an official release or record label. With their unique sound and passion for performance Arctic has mastered a live set that: explodes with energy, is entreating and is well received by fans.
