The Bristol-to-Berlin producer has toured Europe with band-mate Harvey Causon, featured tracks on Radio 1, Apple Music playlists, 'Brown Sugar' and 'New in R&B' and deftly collaborates across the genres. Following the release of intimate jazz ballad Quiet Nights Without You on 9th October, we reflect on music communities, British politics and loss.
Dedicated to coping with the passing of his father, Arrows puts some creative direction to a challenging time. In today’s context of continued crisis, the coronavirus pandemic, fragility of life is brought into sharp focus rendering Gabriel’s difficult theme a relatable one. This is a talented artist who talks so humbly, and we want to listen. He describes the EP’s tone as "retrospective nonchalance” supported by the robust intimacy of collaborators as he makes his first leap out on his own two feet.
The EP leads with Never Stopped for The Sun ‘Til Now, an explicit late night banger brimming in hazed groove, and leaves us with emotionally charged Quiet Nights Without You. Gabriel confidently and sensitively stretches through fields of sound creating a reassuring bubble of escapism for all those yearning for escape; you can listen to both All for You and Quiet Nights Without You pre-release online right now.
