Arca is a french project initiated by Joan Cambon and Sylvain Chauveau at the beginning of 2000. The band's name is a reference to the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa, the word "arca" means "chest" in Portuguese (Pessoa left most of his writings inside a chest that was discovered after he died). Arca is inspired by music, cinema, literature, photographs, daily occidental sounds. They use warm electronic sounds, mixed with organic instruments and rainy guitars to draw melancholic landscapes. This is their second album. Highly recommended!
