The Arcs is Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach’s beautiful side project, and they just released their new single, “Lake Superior.” According to Stereogum, the song is inspired by the tv show Making a Murderer.
“Lake Superior” has a Tame Impala-esque sound, relying more on a synthesizer than their earlier work. I’m constantly amazed by musicians that make weird sounds all go together seamlessly. This song is new and different in ways I can’t really explain, and you should give it a listen.
The Arcs debut album, Yours Dreamily, was released in 2015. Here’s hoping a new one is coming soon.
