COULD WE SURVIVE is the first in a series of four EPs that indie singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur released in the spring and summer of 2008. Its six songs focus on the orchestral and atmospheric side of Arthur's musical personality, featuring ornate, often lavish arrangements supporting the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter's thoughtful, poetic songs. Highlights include the anthemic opener, "Rages of Babylon," and the thoughtful title track.
