Song List

  • "Some Kind of Chill"
  • "Away"

The Brooklyn quintet Arizona plays fun, unpredictable rock that has attracted attention in the blog world and beyond. With a stream-of-consciousness recording and production style — the band wrote and recorded its first EP, The Sun and the Room, in just five days — Arizona possesses an agreeably organic sound.

Arizona's self-released debut, Welcome Back Dear Children, was written a few months after the group's members moved to New York. Its songs seem simple, but a close listen to inventive and infectious songs like "Some Kind of Chill" and "Somersby" reveals surprisingly complex layers and textures.
