Arthur Rigby & the Baskervylles are an six-piece chamber pop band, based in Leeds.
The sound the band creates is a beautiful mixing pot of lush orchestrations, poetic lyrics, romantic melodies and powerful energy.
Arthur Rigby have had a busy couple of years, opening the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds, Deer Shed Festival, featuring at Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and supporting acts like Duke Special and The Miserable Rich.
They have become firm favourites of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, who regularly features the band on his show.
Arthur Rigby & the Baskervylles released their debut EP Tales From Pegasus Wood in April 2012.
The five track EP encapsulates the band’s sound, moving from the huge chorus of Dark Clouds to the epic climactic storm on lead single One Stormy Night to the tender and fragile melodies on Ode to Gog.
The EP was extremely well received and has featured on BBC Introducing on 6 Music and West Yorkshire.
They will perform live at Telford’s Warehouse in Chester on Friday, February 7. Entry £4.
