Bio

The project began as two friends, with a mutual affinity for pop, recording their own demos from home. After laying down a plethora of songs with a keen focus on melody and distinct pop sensibilities, they decided it was time to expand. In order to reproduce the tracks live, they recruited a bass player and got to work on arranging and rehearsing the material. The final piece was put into place when, after writing drum parts for the demos, long time friend Steve Judd (Karnivool) was added as a permanent member and The Arsonist was formed. The bands debut EP 'Disguises', engineered by Dave Parkin (Jebediah, Sugar Army, Red Jezebel), pays homage to pop music that has dominated both dance-floors and airwaves for years, all the while effortlessly creating an original brand of upbeat electro-pop that is overtly infectious.

pretty flawless, pretty groovy... great to hear actual instruments being played in a genre that normally rejects them.

A great pop sound; strong vocals and a fiery energy that builds up superbly. Feels like you guys would kill it live plus great to hear Steve doing something so so different from Karnivool, very left field but fantastic for it!
