Although White Arrows lead singer Mickey Shiff has a backstory that's stranger than fiction, his music is the kind of technicolor dreamboat of sounds that resonate with just about everyone. White Arrows make shimmery electro-pop, a combination of the grit of New York clubs and the sun-drenched beats of the band's native LA.
Shiff was born legally blind, spent his formative years crafting his musical talents and sharpening his sense of sound, and then miraculously gained sight at the age of 11, which is enough to inspire anyone. Later, after college, Shiff formed a band with brother Henry Schiff and childhood friend J.P. Caballero (who turned out to be his brother as well, due to a sperm donation by Shiff's father). With a thirst for brilliant tunes and plenty of material for the band's bio, Shiff and company got to penning. One example of their unbridled joy, "Get Gone", is below.
The RAC-produced track will see an official release on 9/6 as a 7" on Ooh La La Records, with the b-side being a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Save Me A Place".
