Deep Ellum Art Company and At The Helm Presents: San Fermin

San Fermin songwriterEllis Ludwig-Leone writes songs that shift seamlessly between joy and dread,
panic and euphoria. Since the band’s beginnings in 2013, San Fermin’s ambitious scope has taken

them across a variety of genres, attracting an eclectic group of collaborators that reflect Ludwig-
Leone’s own wide-ranging musical background. San Fermin rose to early acclaim on the strength of

their self-titled debut, which bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone had initially envisioned as a one-off
featuring more than 20 collaborators. NPR hailed the album as “one of the year's most surprising,
ambitious, evocative and moving records,” while Pitchfork called breakout single “Sonsick”
“deliriously infectious.” Buoyed by the record’s success, Ludwig-Leone put together a full-time band
and hit the road, performing everywhere from the Tiny Desk to Lollapalooza and sharing bills with
the likes of alt-J, Courtney Barnett, the National, and St. Vincent. In the years to come, the group
would go on to release three similarly lauded albums, prompting The New Yorker to celebrate their
“knack for simultaneously expressing beauty and crisis,” and Rolling Stone to declare them “masters
of highbrow chamber pop.

Written in the topsy-turvy days following two different breakups, San Fermin’s poignant new
album, Arms, is a testament to the band’s ability to transform pain and isolation into catharsis and
healing. The songs are more minimalist than ever before, stripping away much of the sonic
ornamentation the Brooklyn eight-piece has come to be known for in favor of a more raw, direct
sound reflective of the album’s candid, plainspoken lyrics. The result is a deeply moving,
compassionate collection, one that moves from anger and disappointment to clarity and
acceptance as it balances devastation and hope in equal measure.
