They are a Folk/Indie band based around singer songwriter Birte Paulsen. Inspired in part by Nordic Folk, Americana and Chanson, their music is hauntingly beautiful – bitter sweet melodies with delicate yet powerful vocals whose fragility pulls the listener in and won't let them go. Rather than being afraid of darkness and melancholy, they find a certain beauty and comfort in it and therefore create music that has the eccentric charm of Tom Waits combined with the subtle beauty and intensity of female vocalists such as Ane Brun, Lene Marlin or Agnes Obel.
Arthur and The Irrational have been making a name for themselves in the South East of the UK since starting their journey in 2010, when they came second in The Sussex Music Awards and played Brighton Live Festival. Since then they have been very busy playing many prestigious venues, they were asked to perform at The Royal Pavillion Theatre in Brighton as part of SOURCE New Music night, supported acts such as US band Crooked Fingers and Jazz Morley and have gained new fans along the way. They are currently recording their first album to be released early next year.
