New Arcades – From The Dark

I often discover music that is perfectly suited to a moment – though perhaps there is some inevitability in that as I am almost always writing music reviews – however – a weekend with a new dance-track – what more does life require?

New Arcades over the years have always kept their music light to the touch, yet with sufficient gravitas to capture attention and From The Dark, set for official release on the 3rd of February, with its feathering beat and drifting vocal is no exception. They never aim to start a revolution, it is, evolution of a party mood which is more their speciality as they tempt the conversations to stop and the dancing to begin.

New Arcades – Where We Were Before – Single Review

New Arcades is an electro-indie outfit from England.

New Arcades – Where We Were Before

The journey of New Arcades has been well worth travelling over the four years since their initial introduction as the duo of Dean Canty and Adam Sullivan have evolved – to now include Robert Fewery on live performance on the drums.




The synthesised guitar on Where We Were Before hoves into earshot long before the drum-pad loops weave their way into the room as the vocal sheaths itself inside a gauze set with the harmonics of Sarah Bird from the band C L I M B I N G C L U B allowing New Arcades to deliver silken textures in which the audience is invited to wallow.

As the line – ‘Everything Falls Into Place’ suggests – Where We Were Before is a superlative update of where New Arcades now stand and I look forward to following their journey over the next four years.

New Arcades – Motionless – Audio

The English synth-wave duo New Arcades released the EP We Had It All for Just a Moment on the 29th.

It is always a pleasure to travel with musicians on their journey of exploration and back in 2012 when first introduced – only two songs existed.




Motionless, the middle of the five tracks seems to be a righteous positioning for an update as the sweeping new-romantic synthetics submerge beneath a mellifluous anthemic chant, which if words fail finds hands slapping in time to body writhing.

New Arcades have ploughed their furrow to little spotlight for the past best of a half decade and to my mind have long served their apprenticeship, the only sadness is that they remain an ‘underground bastion’ of the best music that doesn’t gain commercial traction for no reason than people can’t be bothered. So I thank you, as a reader of the site,  for taking time to discover the musicians who should be better known but aren’t – for merely lack of happenstance.

One can only hope that at some point the mass market will awake their mind to the delights of New Arcades, rather than you discovering their latest ideas in yet another four years on this website, even though to do so is always a pleasure as the creative world of music needs more of these two and less of the latest ‘EMI foundlings’.
