Molly Payton initially used our live room as a creative space for writing and rehearsing with her band. It was during this time that she discovered our talent for producing captivating live sessions at our recording studio in East London. This discovery led her to choose Arcus Sounds as the backdrop for her upcoming video series, ‘Slackville Sessions,’ which coincided with the release of her mini-album ‘Slack’ under Bug Records.

Molly, along with her band (comprising half of the Swedish rock band ‘Francobollo’ and fellow New Zealand native Isaac on the drums), delivered a performance that lived up to the high standards set by their recordings. They set up in front of an impressive green screen, creating a unique fusion between two worlds during their live session at our East London recording studio.
