Arthur Beatrice: Real Life

Here’s a special new one from Arthur Beatrice. Choosing the band’s moniker by inverting head Golden Girl Bea Arthur’s name aside, the quartet’s 11-track inauguration is a brooding, largely quirk-less affair that sounds a bit like Beach House setting up shop on a bridge above the Thames. Vocal duties are split between the fantastically named, Morrissey-esque Orlando Leopard and the soulful Ella Girardot, the latter of whom imbues each syllable with a sort of restrained, wounded elegance that’s both bewitching and melancholy, like Adele or Florence Welch at their least bombastic. Musically, the duo toe the line between urban sophisti-pop and crestfallen indie rock, and at their most effective (“Late,” “Midland,” “Grand Union”), they evoke the best works of the artists they sound most similar to, while managing to sow some of their own seeds within the existing architecture.

Arthur Beatrice: Real Life Lyrics:
Taking for content every time
Giving up everything to stand up breathing
There is no name ? There is no name ?
Keep this little thing in mind
Your all devotion, your way of thinking
What a way to spend your time
What a way to give all you could be keeping

Do you really enjoy this?
Does it not make you win sometimes

And you decide everything
I was giving it, Real life
And look at this house you’ve build
I’ve been living in, All this time

You did what I worry I couldn’t never do
Sacrificing all your hopes to mine
Now I’ve become so self involved
It’s easy to forget what you left behind
Will I ever do the same?
The task of giving never asking, never anything
Does it resonate with self exposed
You like me or have I grown a cold

Do you really enjoy this?
Does it not make you win sometimes

And you decide everything
I was giving it, Real life
And look at this house you’ve build
I’ve been living in, All this time

And I’ve been feeling
But I know that you know me
And ? Never to discover
How to live ? Life is ?
Don’t think I’m capable
Of sacrificing anything

You decide everything
I was giving it, Real life
And look at this house you’ve build
I’ve been living in
All this time, You decide everything
I was giving it, Real life
And look at this house you’ve build
I’ve been living in, All this time
You decide everything, You decide everything
You decide everything, You decide everything
