Lawrence, Kansas duo Arc Flash are set to release Carbon Copy, their full length debut on March 31st via High Dive Records (The Conquerors, Rooftop Vigilantes, Psychic Heat) and today they are sharing the record's first single, "Earls". The duo of Mark Rockwell (drums) and James Thomblison (guitar/vocals) who also play in garage psych band Psychic Heat, have been generating a buzz throughout the scene thanks to their unique brand of "space punk" and "mutant pop". Full of blistering punk energy, infectious hooks, and raw fuzz, the band’s sound is as explosive and aggressively catchy.

 

LISTEN TO "EARLS"

Speaking about "Earls," New Noise Magazine called the single, "a two and a half minute blast of gravelly, bouncy fuzz-pop. With surf-twinged signifiers of early Wavves and brash guitar melodies sprinting in unison with telephone-receiver vocals, it’s a succinct, obscenely catchy dose of jangly, punk-spirited sweetness.”

Arc Flash will be hitting the road in March and April together with Howardian, Dressy Bessy, and Condor & Jaybird. Complete dates can be found below.

Arc Flash mixes the abrasive with the undeniably catchy to create music that can transfix even the shortest of attention spans. Blistering without repelling, the duo mixes punk, noise, surf, and pop into music that is both fun and visceral. The sound is taut without losing its carefree feel. Equally comfortable in a moldy basement as an elegant hall, Arc Flash makes any environment their own (keep an eye out for roving gangs of masked sci-fi hooligans). Like the electrical phenomena for which it is named, Arc Flash is unpredictable and bombastic.
