Shooting White Arrows

In the summer of 2008, fresh out of NYU with a degree in Ritualistic Shamanism, LA native Mickey Church began White Arrows. Fusing his studies with a drum machine and the looming, immediate presence of a booming NYC club scene, White Arrows was intended less as a band, than as a social document, detailing the experiences of Church's age cohort - the young, ambitious, f*cked up, beautiful children of a new cosmopolitan America; an America - all coastal culture and no middle.

It didn't take long before Church began seeing his band's name spray-painted all over the lower east side, and tattooed on the arms of friends and acquaintances. White Arrows isn't a band; it is a youth cult to the now.

White Arrows’ debut EP, Hearts and Lungs, is slated for a late August release, to coincide with the group's 5 week August Monday night residency at Spaceland.
