Under the Radar presents Lawrence Arabia, "The Sparrow" album release and NZ tour.
Lawrence Arabia’s eagerly awaited new studio album The Sparrow will be released in New Zealand on 6 July, followed by four special shows across New Zealand’s main centres, including the Auckland Town Hall on 20th July and the Wellington Opera House on 22nd July.
The Sparrow is Lawrence Arabia's evocative follow up to the Taite Music Prize/Silver Scroll winning Chant Darling.
Venturing away from the harmony-laden, classic pop production of Chant Darling, The Sparrow is a more measured and minimalist work, drawing particularly on the influence of symphonic late-sixties production.
‘I became totally enamoured with the mystique and aesthetic limitations of these late-sixties and early-seventies records where there was so much space in the arrangements and you can really luxuriate in the sounds of individual instruments.’ says Arabia.
The tour will see Lawrence Arabia perform with very special guests for each date – including a string ensemble who are prominent throughout the album.
The first single from this highly anticipated album will be released shortly and available as a free download.
