About White Arrows
This is the story of a boy who accidentally started a band. Literally.
The formation of White Arrows, an indie rock outfit from Los Angeles, came by way of New York. That's where singer/songwriter Mickey Schiff posted one of his songs online and was shocked by the attention it started to receive. From making the rounds on blogs to being talked about by Nylon Magazine, Schiff's early work proved to be the catalyst to something much bigger.
After relocating to the west coast, Schiff assembled what would become the full lineup of White Arrows, which includes Steven Vernet on bass, Andrew Naeve on guitar/electronics, John Paul Caballero on guitar/electronics, and Schiff's younger brother Henry on drums. The group quickly saw its star rise, releasing their debut album, "Dry Land Is Not a Myth," in 2012 on Seattle-based label Votiv.
Tours of the U.S., Europe, and Australia followed the album release White Arrows supported acts like Cults, White Denim, the Naked and the Famous, and !!!. They also made appearances at major festivals like Coachella and Sasquatch.
White Arrows' sophomore album, "In Bardo," was released in September 2014. The first single from the record was "Leave It Alone," which bowed in May to high praise from fans and critics. By the time the full album dropped, its appeal was evident. A review on Consequence of Sound said "White Arrows seem to have grown significantly more confident in their ability to compose, perform, and yes, seduce." Spin also called the album "glorious."
