Morris End, the outsider pop debut from Brisbane teen Arthington Stack, is out now through Endless Records.
Arthington Stack compels serious notice on his label debut single Morris End. Tinkering in the damp recesses of a concrete basement in suburban Brisbane, Stack’s obsessive pursuits have yielded an idiosyncratic outsider sound, with layers and levels.
The grainy baroque Barrett-esque pop of Morris End dresses in rebellious low fi tones. Among snatches of 60’s Soho psychedelia, black metal, baroque pop and general outlier weirdly-ness, Stack has a freewheeling and thrilling method at play. A shift in time and place, an arcane moodiness with hints of underlying beauty and a writer with new things to say and new ways to say them.
Bringing to mind the likes of Swell Maps, Brian Wilson, Ariel Pink, John Maus, Alex G, Morris End is accompanied by an equally enigmatic metaphor-laden video clip, Arthington Stack adds that Morris End, “is a seaside’s song of hopes and fears. I’d love to see you all in Morris End.”
The first new music from his debut album ‘His Sterrible Ark’ due later this year, Morris End coincides with Stack presenting his fractured pop project live, opening for label bosses Bad/ Dreems at their upcoming Brisbane show at The Triffid on June 30th.
