The music of Jeremiah Brunnhoelzl has matured immeasurably over just the last few years. Following the tragic passing of bandmate Nic Kohagen, Brunnhoelzl’s former group Noble Firs was put to rest in 2014, but his mourning and creative energies were quickly funneled into a new project, Arlo Indigo, and an impressive eleven track debut emerged in just six months.
This Sunday night at Rontoms, along with Ali Muhareb and Rare Diagram, Arlo Indigo will celebrate the release of their follow up, Dreamboat EP, the project’s first proper studio effort (recorded with Brock Grenfell of Gold Casio and Adventure Galley) and also the first to feature the full band. Ahead of the release, Noise and Color is pleased to premiere the EP’s opener, “Purple Mountain Drive,” a modern albeit timeless feeling tune, akin to something between Tame Impala and R.E.M. with a wall of dreamy synth tones held up by a steady groove and layered with Brunnhoelzl’s unassuming croon that creates the song’s driving melody.
