TUNE The Arcadian Kicks - You Play The Girl
The Arcadian Kicks are a Birmingham-based group who have been active for the last few years, making a name for themselves by hosting their own club nights in the city and touring extensively across the country.
The band have evolved over the past six months, developing their music into a formidable new sound that weaves shimmering, ethereal melodies with shattering, wailing soundscapes and rel...entlessly solid rhythm, all of which is brought together by powerful, delicately honest lyrics.
Their music blends old influences with new, and they take inspiration from right across the musical spectrum. From older bands like Fleetwood Mac, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth, right up to new, modern bands, such as The Horrors and The Naked and Famous.
The band have been working and recording with Mike Chapman, legendary producer of Blondie's classic albums.This partnership has resulted in two creative, extremely weird and enjoyable studio sessions, and has produced music that’s seen the band take a dramatic step forward from their indie/rock roots into a new, unique sonic realm of rhythm and harmony, delivered with a powerful audacity that is sure to make it hard for music fans everywhere to ignore.
