Arthur revels in blending his traditional acoustic pop songwriting with innovative, wholly unique production; drawing from no end of unusual sources of samples and inspirations, with warm, prismatic, harmonised vocals, wrapped in sunlight. Honest, confessional music, and an Irish singer-songwriter flair, this style was quite literally developed in-house: a founding member of the label, and living with electronic artists and producers Actualacid and Automatic Blue, Splitscreen is the product of years of finding natural ways to build out his songs.
Arthur Valentine has the same pop sensibilities as much of the softer side of Brockhampton’s catalog [...] with roots firmly in bedroom pop, but with an additional level of sheen that doesn’t disrupt its intimate qualities. One for fans of Clairo, Ryan Beatty and Christian Alexander” — District Magazine
“Arthur Valentine recalls the confessional tracks of Frank Ocean. Not a bad look for the debut song from this new Cork artist.” — Nialler9 / The Irish Times
“Although I like a variety of pop styles, Arthur Valentine brings more to the table than most. Jazzy guitar-picking, different vocal styles across the track (soul, rn'b, blues and pop), and an undeniable level of smooth.” — REMY
