Here Comes the Devil is the second single taken from the new ARBORIST album A Northern View out on 7 th Feb 2020.
It follows lead single Taxi which was released in November 2019 to widespread acclaim and regular radio play from the likes of Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq and Cerys Matthews. ARBORIST’s chief architect and songwriter, Mark McCambridge, says of Here Comes the Devil “it’s about those unspoken or subconscious prejudices that most people have buried but which can be stirred and reveal themselves when they think they can get away with it; in their own home, online or…at the ballot box. The cathartic ending is it all pouring out.”

The new album, A Northern View, encapsulates a time and place, the here and now, for better or worse. Rich in melody and mood, it is resplendent with lush arrangements and underpinned by an uneasiness that unsettles the listener just when they’ve been lured in. Complex, literary and political, Mark McCambridge has produced the album that is needed from the place where he is from, at the very time when uncertainty abounds. It is a paean to this part of world at an unsettled and unsettling moment.

Arborist came to the attention of the critics with their debut single, the Americana tinged 2015 debut single “Twisted Arrow”, that features an astonishing duet with Kim Deal of The Breeders. Their 2016 debut album Home Burial was nominated for the Northern Irish Music Prize and released to critical acclaim, with Mojo hailing it as “a staggering debut of depth and substance” and The Guardian calling it an “instant classic.” Uncut described the lead single, “A Man Of My Age”, as articulating, “the claustrophobia of family life with sensitive frankness amid a mesmerizing Smog-like languor”.
