UK's The Arthur Brothers and the world building "Ninth"

The song Ninth by UK's The Arthur Brothers feels like poised art rock with intimate sounds that erupt into something big and dramatic. With  tom tom drums evoking something in between operatic rock and almost tribal punk vibes you can feel the ghost of goth rock bands like Tears For Fears or the world beat sounds of Peter Gabriel. This kind of sound can veer into melodrama or feel Broadway-ish if it becomes to self aware but the Arthur Brothers' earnest vocal performances keep that from happening. 

Their first single release, Ninth is the opening stage of the nine part musical adventure that will eventually be unveiled as The Arthur Brothers' debut album...
