Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
We have been Good! Working hard as always, or it feels like that anyway haha!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Kickback”?
So Kickbacks a song about basically being sick of living that repeat lifestyle. Feeling like, drained, fed up, and just holding your middle finger up to all them things that are sort of, forced upon you, you know? Sometimes I think allot of people get knocked down and don’t really ever get back up. Or even attempt to. That’s what this songs about. High Energy power haha.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
We like writing high energy songs allot. Its something we love playing, when you can get the crowd involved and actually see everybody feeling it and knowing that there on your wavelength. That’s an unforgettable moment. So not one event in particular, just pretty much all of them.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
YES! We will be releasing a music video for this single early April! The music videos brutal too so people should really check It out!
How was the recording and writing process?
Sometimes when writing songs it can feel like the easiest thing in the world, and than others it can be like you work for NASA. I have no idea how it happens but it just does haha. This song felt like we went through different variations, different opinions and we really did mix it up. The great thing about being in a band where people bring so much to the table is that you get ideas thrown in left right and centre. Ideas you didn’t think of, they didn’t think of, and its always worth trying them all until you get the finished product your all happy with.
How has Faith No More and Limp Bizkit influences your writing?
People always compare our music to them, I guess its because there isn’t allot of Nu metal bands around these days, even though our music can be similar I think our whole style and writing is so very different. We always try and be ourselves, make music we want to hear, put our own flavour on things. There are many great artists that have influenced everyone in this band as people, making it super special when we get together.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
We are currently working on a new EP. Right now were doing one thing at a time and hope to release it maybe towards the end of 2018. When we write music we always try and make it the best we can, were strong believers that if were going to write something and put it out we really want to make it our best!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Hmm, we have a few but nothing set in concrete, were still just passing ideas around!
Any plans to hit the road?
Currently no as we have just had our heads down with all this writing! We always have a few shows here and there as we love playing live. Our next big show is going to be on April the 14th!
What else is happening next in ARCADIA’s world?
Just the usual really, back to basics. More music making, more shows being played, everything really. This is something we really love doing and have been given the chance to do so for a long time now. We just want to keep pushing the dream, staying on the grind whilst staying down to earth. That’s what’s really important!
