Comprised of Dean Canty and Adam Sullivan, the duo blends vintage synths with contemporary production and melodic vocals.
Said the duo: “Given the current climate, lockdown, lack of being able to see all those friends and family as much, it felt like something we all need, an escape, to get away, find space. With the general feeling of anxiety, it’s common that you’d want to alleviate it by some form of escaping or running away, so this is the basis of the song’s story.. We envisioned it as a romance in a cinematic/filmic style. Two people escaping together aided by the melancholic/emotional undertones in some parts of the song, whilst also being inclusive of those people who might suffer with anxieties, stress, worry, loneliness, or who feel overwhelmed and a need to escape.”
Nostalgic enchantment is where New Arcades weave. The resulting tapestry of shimmer is a healing moment of your soul – your heart.
After putting out various singles and EPs, the end of 2019 saw the release of their debut album, ‘Returning Home’.
