Heart wrenching yet full of energy!
Arrows new single “Hello Cheater” ft. The Lightyears Explode is an in-your-face garage rock song written from the perspective of one’s conscience addressing them after committing to an affair away from their significant other. For this song, Arrows tapped Mumbai-based punk/rock/pop band The Lightyears Explode to collaborate with.
I’ve been a fan of The Lightyears Explode for 10 years, the guys are heroes of mine. So, when they agreed to work on this song with me I was ecstatic, really honored that they said yes. Working with them was a breeze and they definitely helped capture the sound and feel of the song. I’d totally work with them again in a heartbeat.Dave Britto
Dave Arrows’ latest single, “Hello Cheater,” is a lively callout directed at a nameless, faceless cheater who needs to pay for their wicked ways. The track opens with driving electric guitar riffs and heavy drum hits that really color the rest of the song. The whole event really does feel like a damning declaration of intent–this cheater has done the narrator dirty and they aren’t putting up with it any longer.
