Watch: Live at The Carleton with Arsoniste

The Halifax-based singer-songwriter continues our special Facebook Live series

Halifax Presents returned Live at The Carleton in our continuing live online music series as we welcomed Arsoniste on April 18.

Arsoniste (pronounced ‘Are-Sun-East’) is the moniker of Halifax-based singer-songwriter Rachel Sunter. Soulful and contemplative, her lyrics brave the depths of messy relationships and dysfunctional headspaces.

Inspired by alternative artists like The National and Radiohead, with the pop sensibilities of Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga, Arsoniste embraces and reworks the pop genre, adding flourishes of unexpected complexity that reveal a playful, intellectual approach to songwriting.

In this latest in our ongoing Live at The Carleton series, Arsoniste performs some of her original work and we go behind the music to find out more.
