About

Over the past year or so I have been collecting a lot of music. Just trying to digest it all and decide whether stuff is ‘good’ or not. Basically just a music blog with a little bit of life thrown in.

    Hey there,

    My name is Bharat Chalmers, I play in Australian band The Sparkling Arrest, which is comprised of 3 brothers. We’ve just released our debut EP, Live In The White Room Pt. 1, and are seeking press/reviews for our release. You can:

    Watch video of the EP being performed live in full: http://vimeo.com/album/225381

    Or:

    A press-only mp3 download of the EP is available here, via Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/the-sparkling-arrest/sets/promo-live-in-the-white-room-pt-1/s-KTg2j (you’ll find the download link a small arrow icon at the far right of each song).
    Live In The White Room Pt. 1 is the first in a series of two EPs, part one of which has just been released digitally for sale via Bandcamp, here.

    Feel free to embed any of the video or audio on your site.

    A Sample of Previous Press And International Media

    An example of some people who have discovered our music via the internet are Tony Cowell (older brother of Simon Cowell) who spoke about us on his US radio show:

    “…I also really like Aussie band The Sparkling Arrest. Your song Skyman is really good. It reminds me of the Waterboys – May I suggest something? – Strip it back and do a 3 minute version – you may then have a hit on your hands.”

    Watch/Listen to Skyman (Radio Edit): http://vimeo.com/12474704

    Another is British music blogger Paul Reynolds, who also has a monthly half hour radio interview with National US radio presenter Larry Flick. Here is a review he wrote for one of our songs.

    “The Sparkling Arrest… have released the epic tune I know they had in them. The Seventh Sigh is a gently increasing wall of sound that crescendos into a terrific arms in the air stadium anthem. Crashing piano, blistering guitar and an impassioned vocal – it belongs on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. People would “lose their shit” as the kids on the street say. Quite wonderful.”
