Thomas writes his songs at home while recording them. The lo-fi approach and a detailed ear for (programmed) bleeps, layers and clicks unmistakably define the DNA of Amongster’s music. To add extra dynamics to the album, producer Reinhard Vanbergen was involved in the mixing of the original takes.
‘A New Arrival’ is a dynamically layered, tasteful, balanced record with hopeful, thoughtful, light and warm-hearted aspects. The same melancholic predilection for pure aesthetics is also seen in the cover, a creation by visual artist Sammy Slabbinck.
