"Mysore Pak" album review
" For the primitive production feel and the simplicity of basslines that just loop endlessly, Mysore Pak is so much more than a hipsterish replica of real life that skips along nicely. As accessible as this album is, it's got more depth and more instant biteback than you would ever imagine. An album that steps out of time and spans infinite time and space, it's got a lot going for it.«

Comeback von One Arm mit Beiträgen u.a. von Little Annie February 5, 2021
"Two drumsets, two bass guitars, field recordings and samples. Originally a three-piece girls lineup, they gently migrated into a hybrid orchestra (both organic and electronic), a band with a perfectly respected parity (two women, two men) which creates its own musical style at the crossroads of noise rock, dub, ancestral asymmetrical music, industrial music, no-wave... guided by this captivating and mysterious female voice imprinted with the hypnotic calls of cold wave.” *

Chronicle for "Mysore Pak
" ... With each of its tracks, One Arm defies the predictable. Sonically schizophrenic, One Arm refuses care. In his dementia, he belongs..."

One Arm "Treat/Brilliant" (7' EP, Reissue. Atypeek Music, 15 January 2021). January 21, 2021
<= « Une formation inhabituelle avec deux batteurs, deux basses et des samples. Lors des concerts, un guitariste se joint à eux. Pourquoi ce type de formation, ou juste pour quoi faire ? Aucune idée. Mais sur cet album, ils sont rejoints par quelques invités supplémentaires, dont Little Annie. Le quatuor parisien présente son premier album dans une superbe esthétique No Wave, glaçante mais pas trop radicalement déconstructive. Enregistrées entre 1998 et 2016, les douze morceaux rappellent Sonic Youth, tandis qu’Alara Music s’incline devant ‘Space Is The Place‘ ».
" Mysore Pak " Chronicle- April 2021
« Two basses, two drums, an electronic machination and a repertoire that rolls in mid-tempo on a highway lined with kaleidoscopic landscapes. A mechanic highlighted by a cleverly repetitive vocal that makes the melodic atmosphere of their new compositions

" ... From the simple visuals to the quality of the sound, one arm takes us into its magical and fluid dreams, like drops of water..."
" A music as unclassifiable as ever. A Moonshake with an oriental influence, the 80's scrubbed, something as vaguely danceable as creepy, melancholic and coldly melodic. Hypnosis always, rhythmic obsession, samples perfectly integrated in an impressionist world, compositions that just pass by, in dotted line, electro fiddling to sow even more chaos and make people lose all notions of time and style, science of the twisted, tangled rhythm, weirdly dancing groove, sickly tribal, female vocals that make you float or ghostly, outdated charm and unattached band, One Arm still has no equivalent."
