New Arcades are Dean Canty and Adam Sullivan, a duo inspired by nostalgic memories of 80’s cinema and vintage synth sounds. Taking those feelings and bringing them into a contemporary production setting, New Arcades craft the perfect soundtrack to living in the moment or reminiscing of good times gone by.
Their music is catching ears and turning heads across the media spectrum, with features on films such as Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong and A Light Beneath Their Feet as well as airplay on BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and a variety of radio stations around the world, and blog support from numerous high impact outlets.
The start of 2018 saw the release of their new EP Nothing Is Lost which showcased the duo’s ever-evolving sound, and return September 21st with the emphatic and emotive Hideaway. Slowly burning, this track builds to a powerful synthetic harmony of electronics that wash over you, with the undertow of the vocals immersing you firmly into the unfolding narrative.
On the narrative behind Hideaway, the duo shares:
“We wanted this to be a bit of a journey, starting restrained with lots of space & really building to a dynamic, emotional end. Lyrically, the song is very introspective, focuses on self doubt & overcoming anxiety through the help of someone close to you.”
