Arca - Sheep

Ending last year with a mind warping cover of Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie as part of the Dazed 100 and after his Mute debut 'Xen', Arca burst into 2015 with the colossal news that he’s been a big part in co-producing Bjork’s new album alongside The Haxan Cloak.

As well as this, last night the Venezuelan producer debuted exclusive new material at Hood By Air’s FW15 show in Italy. Carrying on the dark, twisted sounds of Xen, ‘Sheep’ builds and releases in waves of terrifying and angelic sounds. As one Soundcloud user aptly puts it: “Like being punched in the stomach repeatedly and coming back expecting cuddles”.
