"If To Arms Etc were singing about a burning school with the kids trapped inside, they would be doing it from a distance, leaning on a tree. Moved enough to warrant a song perhaps, but not lifting a finger to help." FOR ALL MUSIC SAMPLES AND BONUS MEDIA PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK TO THE MYSPACE PAGE.

Biography

TO ARMS ETC - BRONZE RAT RECORDS.

Beautiful, idiosyncratic debut album from band led by acclaimed australian singer-songwriter, charles campbell-jones, mixing orchestral pop, indie-prog and art-rock to magical effect. 'corner games' is produced by Ben Thackeray (radiohead, bloc party, roots manuva). to arms etc are named after serge gainsbourg's notorious reggae album, 'aux armes et caetera'. cd only on Bronzerat.

“...engaging, piano-powered, big-stride pop, widescreened with surfy swathes of harmony vocals and rich textures of cello, organ, bottleneck guitar and skittish imagination.” PHIL SUTCLIFFE, MOJO

"WELDING SMART LYRICS TO SONIC ADVENTURE - “A snapshot of the 21st
century playout with baroque undertones and an ear for a catchy tune."
TERRY STAUNTON, UNCUT MAGAZINE

"...To Arms Etc debut luxuriates in the same balmy baroque pop waters
as the beach boys, Todd Rundgren and Rufus Wainwright, with dreamy
harmonies arch lyrics and artful piano led arrangments."
