richard youngs – organ, percussion, piano, synth, tape, voice

Arrow is a piano album – the sound of Hebden Bridge on a Saturday afternoon, embellished with wisps of Glasgow. Recorded especially for Preserved Sound in Hebden Bridge, "Arrow" is sound of Richard Youngs alone at the piano, embellished with light drums and an old organ. This collection of solo improvisations is all about capturing the moment – that piano and that afternoon in Hebden Bridge.

​“I sat down at the piano and just played,” says Richard. “No preconceptions, nothing worked out. I wasn't trying to achieve anything other than to enjoy playing the piano.There was also an organ in the room, so there are touches of that. I then took these back to Glasgow and knocked it into shape – a few overdubs, nothing drastic.”

"At times it sounds like two Steve Reich albums are playing at the same time whilst somebody sits in the corner gently wrestling with a piano" – Mono-Stereo Records

A rare voice in experimental music that is simultaneously very good and also entirely up for taking the piss. Arrow has Youngs playing a kind of free psychedelic jazz." – Norman Records

The release comes as a limited edition, hand-assembled 180g vinyl and CD, hand stamped and numbered on the back, and limited to 300 copies.
