This new band is the latest project instigated by Black Keys man Dan Auerbach, a musician who has proven himself time and again to be able to bring a clear singular vision to a diverse array of projects and collaborations. Whether its his Americana leaning solo album of his role as a deeply hands-on producer for the likes of Lana Del Rey and the legendary Dr John, Auerbach brings a deep musicality and vintage grit to every project. The Arcs is no exception!
The band consists of some of the finest side-men around; drummer for New York soul stars The Dap-Kings Homer Steinweiss, Mark Ronson’s go-to bassist Nick Movshon, Menehan Street Band/ El Michels Affair saxophonist Leon Michels and Shins member/ Damien Jurado producer Richard Swift. With such a wealth of talent on board its no surprise that this debut album is packed full with swaggering soul grooves and vintage cool and is right up there with Auerbach’s finest work to date.
