Arsenic! may be in its infancy, the indiest stage of any band, but right away the listener can hear a self-defined sound. Still, Arsenic!'s music is strongly influenced by some of the more popular indie bands. As Arsenic! matures, it will no doubt explore further the unique melodies and writing that the talents of its members are trying to express.
The lifting cadence of the guitar based music provides enough contrast against the somber sounding vocals to keep the listener comfortable. The lyrics are pensive and often raw, but they never get too despondent. With each song there is always a soft hope (hesitant as it may sometimes be) reflected in the humble vocals. The overall product can be likened to a caring hug- a hug that I would love to give these boys to assure them that they are going to be just fine. I love you guys.
Arsenic! sure is indie as fuck.
