An indie digital outfit that’s attempted new influx revivalism, tribal beats, and Middle Eastern instrumentation, Rainbow Arabia was shaped in 2008 by spouse/wife duo Tiffany and Danny Preston. Both were wedded for 3 years before they began recording together within their Echo Recreation area cellar in early 2008. Simply prior, Danny got performed in the dub-based clothing Potential Pigeon, and Tiffany was an associate of Licorice Piglet. Affected by Arabic albums released on Sublime Frequencies and a music course that Tiffany went to (which centered on Middle Eastern acoustic guitar), Rainbow Arabia became positively mixed up in experimental L.A. dance-punk picture that yr. The band obtained reputation quickly, and U.K. label Merok (Crystal Castles, Klaxons) authorized on to launch their 1st two EPs, 2008’s The Basta and 2009’s Kabukimono. Their 1st full-length, Kids and Diamonds, got a more exotic, dubby direction. It had been released by Kompakt in 2011. Second recording F.M. Sushi came independently Kompakt imprint Period ROOM in 2013, and stripped aside the duo’s sunlit samples, opting rather to get a darker dance path. L.A. Heartbreak adopted on a single label in 2016 and tended toward a far more fresh wave-inspired electropop.
