/// ARMS THAT FIT LIKE LEGS ///
Formed in 2008, Arms That Fit Like Legs are an independent instrumental/electronic trio from Dublin. From 2008 to 2011, the band released two EPs. Between their eponymous self-titled EP and second EP ‘Plane Figures’, they slowly changed their sound from a more traditional band setup to an electronic trio.
After a brief hiatus of a few years while some of the band lived in London, they started writing music/performing again in 2016. In January 2018, they released the track ‘You Will Go On My First Whistle’, and released the album ‘Legwork’ in March 2019.
“Lush, glistening and elegant, the Dublin outfit deliver a futuristic, vividly imaginative and shapeshifting sound.” Barry Gruff
“Legwork is full of delicately composed, superbly interlocked compositions, mixing floating and flashing guitars with even a little Todd Terje-esque disco flair.” Austin Maloney, Totally Dublin

/// ADAM FLEMING ///
Adam Fleming is a guitarist and songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. His songs are inspired by folk music, Sixties psychedelia and 90’s alternative rock. His songs are melancholy, but laced with a subtle humour and wry realism.
December 2018 saw the release of his first single ‘Victory’, a creeping slice of psychedelic folk with twisting chords and a vocal melody that intermittently lurks and soars. Irish blogger Remy Connolly described it as ‘the perfect mental cast-off of a sunny winter afternoon’ and featured it on his ‘Independent Irish’ playlist alongside acts such as Otherkin and Orla Gartland.
Adam is gigging hard and readying his debut EP ‘Calling The Ghost To Life’, which will see release in 2019.
