The collaborative project of Bombay based artist David Britto, Arrows formed in 2018 when Britto began inviting guest vocalists to feature on his music, delivering something unique and fresh with each song. Since then, the unique and transformative project has released some stunning songs, but his latest, titled ‘To You World’.
The ultimate feel-good single, ‘To Your World’ was inspired by moving away from a relationship, but constantly being drawn back into situations surrounding it. The unique tune is a way of helping to understand that there's more to life than a relationship. Britto explained, “Through the verses, I talk about wanting to shut the past down, while the chorus is me telling myself that there are more possibilities and new adventures to be had with life.”
Working alongside Yohanan D’Souza, the two wanted to create a “jam band” feel. With a gentle but energised tone, ‘To Your World’ emits an uplifting aura, with a warm blues/rocky essence to the production. Homing in on an emporium of inspirations including the likes of Foo Fighters, Oasis, The Beatles and The Beach Boys, the track embodies multiple genre-influenced instrumentations. The drums and guitar give off a rock smoke, while the charming, fun piano riffs ooze a blues edge. Glowing brightly ‘To Your World’ glistens with layered harmonies and soulful vocals from Raghav Meattle, who provides a familiar and comforting feeling. This is the perfect summertime anthem, certain to bring a smile to your face.
When Britto is not composing or performing, he writes for Rolling Stone India and also runs a successful podcast series called ‘My First Record’.
