Arab Strap

Music / Indie, Rock / United Kingdom

Ever since they helped popularize indie pop and slowcore in the nineties, Arab Strap have been a staple in England’s musical scene. And that’s not just because of the group’s sensibilities for great melodies, their layered yet minimalist arrangements, and Aidan Moffat’s characteristically murmuring vocals. Indeed, the unadorned clarity with which the duo tackles existential questions album after album, purposefully triggers new ideas, and even incorporates humour into their songs has often been imitated, but never matched. After a long break during the 2010s, the group returned two years ago with the eclectic indietronica album “As Days Get Dark” and made it clear once again how much their thoughtful song poetry had been missed – and that we need it today more than ever. Now at Reeperbahn Festival they present us an acoustic set to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album "Philophobia."
