‘Father Figure’ is a brand new song from Dublin-based indie quartet Arcwords. Following the release of their debut single ‘Toughen Up’ in April, Arcwords reentered the studio to record three new singles.
The first of these is Father Figure, a catchy indie anthem packed full of guitar hooks with a strong emotional core. The track is produced by Umbrella Records omnipresence Joseph Padfield (Race the Flux/Bannered Mare).
Father Figure’s release is accompanied by a music video, directed by frequent collaborator Olivia McLaughlin, and starring Kevin McMahon as a son dealing with the recent loss of his father.
Arcwords are a four-piece, Dublin based indie band. After meeting as students in BIMM Dublin,
Arcwords have spent the last three years drawing upon post-punk and math rock styles to create a guitar-driven, hook filled sound. Arcwords combine influences such as Bloc Party, TTNG, the Smiths, and Everything Everything, to bring something new to the indie rock table.
