“Intelligent, irreverent, melodic rap with a real story-tellers eye for detail” -Sain Magazine

“A distinct originality, a breath of fresh air”- Music Network

The Cube are the brainchild of performance poet and songwriter Terry McArthur and producer/composer Phil Rigger. The Sydney based duo have dedicated themselves to what Terry describes as “our grand sonic experiment”.

Terry’s lyrics offers audiences a rich poetic vein of imagery. His work has been described as “remarkable for a superbly restrained tenderness and appraisal, expressed in often dazzling images” (Michael Sharkey).

His collaboration with Phil Rigger, a consummate composer and gifted singer has seen the two win acclaim for a mesmerising brand of music that melds spoken word vocals with electronica, pop, rock and world influences.

The Cube have released one album Permanent Scars, a hand full of superb singles, and a series of acclaimed video clips. Along the way they have attracted a growing fan base stretching from Sydney to the USA, France, and Finland.
