"Catchy, driving, up-tempo beats and promising vocals... Great fun and well worth a listen" - NoTitle Magazine
"They really work the crowd with their short, optimistic, rhythm-driven songs that feel like a melting pot... all executed with precise playing on all parts... Artibella made converts of everyone and went down a storm" - Leeds Music Scene
Artibella is a five-piece band of robbers.
Vocalists Beth and Nick duet over ramshackle guitar chords, ska trombone and soaring melodica/harmonica lines, creating a high-energy, lo-fi rock sound with loads of soul.
Each member attends Leeds University and the band is involved with the city's unsigned music scene, playing at venues such as the Faversham, Hi-Fi, Mine, Royal Park Cellars and Carpe Diem. The band have also received airplay and acclaim on BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Radio Leeds..
