More about the arrows
What happens when you take two girls and pip them a gainst an industry that‟s typically testosterone driven? Armed with nothing but a drum, a keyboard and a handbag full of devastatingly, honesty melodies... you get the beat-riddled brilliance of The Arrows!
Welcome then Pam de Menezes and Christie Desfontaine, two trend-bucking brunettes armed to the teeth with original and frightfully spunky produced pop. Formed in 2006 out the port city of Durban, these two feisty, focused and incredibly talented musicians have been reshaping the way music is written, recorded and ultimately played. Add a licensing endorsement from major label champions Universal Music, along with a fully-fledged debut album entitled Make Believe, and a mere four years in 2010 is fast becoming the year that will see The Arrows become players on global scale. “We‟re not playing by the supposed rules of pop or jazz or even rock for that matter,” Pam says. “We‟re undefined by our band members, or lack thereof, because we are partnered to a sound that is constantly evolving rather than aligned to other musicians.” Their self-titled five-track EP, released in late 2007, introduced more than 4000 fans to the possibility that lurked within and, before long, The Arrows were sharing their pop ideal with concert crowds from Splashy Fen to Oppikoppi and many other music festivals across South Africa.
