Barely three months in business and with only one song to show for it, Belfast-based alternative outfit Arborist might well be the newest act on our list, but if they’re green, the quietly epic sounds they create certainly don’t show it. Helmed by the delightfully brooding Mark McCambridge and featuring a talented team of guests, Arborist went all festive on us with their first release, an Elbow-esque, jingle bell-strewn ditty called ‘Don’t Tell Me I’m Too Old For Christmas’. With the holiday season behind us, it’s still worth a spin, if only to get excited about what marvelous noises McCambridge and company will make in 2013.
