The Scottish band Arab Strap have been in my “to listen to” playlist for quite a while now. I remember in the early 2000’s how much attention they were getting in relationship to other bands like Belle & Sebastian and Franz Ferdinand. I am slowly going through their discography and loving their music.
“Cherubs” has a downbeat melancholy sound to it with its dance beat and guitar riff. Vocalist Aidan Moffat’s baritone voice whispers over the track. Check it out above.
