The Arcs are Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon; also on the album are Kenny Vaughan and Mariachi Flor de Toloache.
The Arcs collaboratively wrote and recorded 13 tracks for Yours, Dreamily, with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally. Co-produced by Auerbach and Michels, the album was recorded in roughly two weeks through spontaneous, informal sessions across the country at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, the Diamond Mine in Queens, Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and in a lounge room at Electric Lady in Manhattan. Tchad Blake mixed the album on his horse farm in Wales.
The Arcs’ debut album, Yours, Dreamily, was released Friday, September 4 on Nonesuch Records.
In advance of Yours, Dreamily, The Arcs recently released a 7-inch single, which is available now at independent retail outlets, thearcs.com, and nonesuch.com. Inspired by the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao boxing match, the EP includes the songs “Stay in My Corner” b/w “Tomato Can.” A second 7-inch single was released in September 2015, “Outta My Mind/My Mind”
