Australian foursome Body Type burst through with garage-pop explosion "Arrow"

Body Type are the fast-rising Aussies who are already making some serious waves in their homeland, and are now ready to go international.

The group may have only played their first ever show back in late 2016, but they have more than established themselves as a highly interesting new prospect, mastering a signature sound that is fuelled by excitement and pure garage-pop messiness.

New single "Arrow" is a tightly-packed, immediate earworm where jangling interweaving guitar riffs create a heavenly atmosphere evoking the purity of love itself before bursting into a cataclysmic chorus of thunderous proportions. It feels refreshingly exciting and ridiculously good fun, perfectly articulating the whirlwind of emotions that accompany a new infatuation.

Explaining the inspiration behind the song, vocalist and guitarist Georgia Wilkinson-Derums says: “It’s about the prick of love - the pleasure and pain that accompany being struck by cupid’s arrow. For me the song has always carried the power of female physicality in performance, it’s where I see Body Type get a little more aggressive, a little more dramatic. Wherever it begins and ends we hope it gets the heart pumping and blood running. Keep it loud. BODY TYPE.”

"Arrow" is available to listen to out now via Partisan Records and Inertia Music.
