Arrows is an indie band from Brisbane, Australia. Formed in August 2006, the band’s line-up consisted of Anthony Morgan (guitars, keyboard, vocals), Carl Burnett (bass) and Anders Cairns (drums). Arrows played a handful of shows in this form before Scott Merillo (guitar; formerly of The Paper and the Plane, Asleep at the Scene) joined to complete the current line-up.

Don’t Write Poetry

In Spring of 2006 Arrows self recorded their debut CD-ep "Don’t Write Poetry" which was released on Burnett’s Indoor Children label. The band also manufactured the record themselves and it has since sold out with no plans of a re-release currently in working. The EP consisted of six songs plus an introduction song featuring excerpts from various "Charles Bukowski" poems, the artist from whom the EP title originated.

Split 12” – These Hands Could Separate the Sky

Following a national tour in March of 2007 with Melbourne band These Hands Could Separate the Sky, the two bands embarked on recording a split 12” vinyl record which was released in October 2007 by Indoor Children. Arrows contributed the first three songs to the release, whilst These Hands Could Separate the Sky added two songs of their own for the B-side. The Arrows material is credited as being recorded by David Williams at the SAE Institute, Brisbane. Arrows' contribution to the record was met with positive reviews both nationally and internationally [ [ Arrows review in "Absolute Punk"] ] [ Arrows review in "Collective Zine"] .

Stranded – A Compilation of Brisbane Music 2007

Arrows featured on a three-disc compilation released by " [ Before Hollywood] " with their song "Don’t Interrupt me While I’m Working".


In early 2008 it was announced that Arrows would release a full-length album through "Hobbledehoy Record Co" later in the year [ [ Hobbledehoy Record Co] ] . The title of the album is yet to be confirmed although it is said to again be self-recorded in keeping with the band’s DIY roots, and will be mixed by Sam Johnson (Lead Sketch Union) and mastered by Doug van Sloun (Bright Eyes, Cursive, American Analog Set, The Gloria Record).
