Arma Del Amor Take Back the Sea

New Zealand-born duo Arma Del Amor premiere their latest single Taking Back the Sea, “blending soulful bass with striking visuals,” EDM-culture blog Magnetic Magazine writes in a review.

“Arma Del Amor is made up of Martine Harding and Danny Fairley. Prior to coming together in 2013, Harding had spent most of her musical career as an acoustic artist,” Alexander Dias reports for Magnetic. “Fairley produced hip-hop and electronica as Civilian Sol. Together their nascent influences swirl in unison to form a blend of hypnotic soul and heart stopping bass. They’ve harnessed that power masterfully with their latest, Taking Back the Sea.

“Rich and emotive pads lay the groundwork for Harding’s powerful vocals to soar magnificently. The combination of acoustic drums, percussion, gracefully alluring synth work and powerhouse vocals is something that is truly unique. It speaks to the organic meets electronic nature of the duo’s dynamic. They’ve crafted palpable moments of tension and release both in their breathtaking production work and the stunning visuals that accompany the piece in their video.

“The haunting and strikingly beautiful video is set against the backdrop of New Zealand’s picturesque landscape.”

Arma Del Amor perform as a three-piece with the recent addition of drummer Ricky Simmonds.

Harding and Fairley are from Wanaka.
