ARIGTO


"German duo Arigto creates deeply intimate and referential music that resonates with the listener in an almost transformative way. Although they grew up together and greatly influenced each other's tastes, Arigto has been releasing music for only two years. There's already an unusual certainty in Arigto's work ever since their first release, a flexible sense of direction typical for developed artists. Their 'autodidactic experimental electronic journey' has indeed started from a young age and with a classical education, traces of which are evident in their gracefully unfolding sonic narrative. Combining classical music, unruly distorted elements, and a DIY touch, their sound is mainly influenced by photography, paintings, and movies. It's a synesthetic exploration of duality, infused with uncharacteristic gentleness as if every concept is breakable. The same elegance defines the abstract obscurity of their covers and videos. They released three EPs so far and an incredible full-length unseen untold forgotten that came out on Noisia's Division label." - Dijana Grubor from SecretThirteen 311
