"A fresh, new sound from a St Albans 5 piece"
THE WEIRD BUMBLEBEE
Arcadian are a 5 piece Indie Rock band from St Albans, Hertfordshire, equipped with catchy hooks that you could imagine whole stadiums chanting, riffs more infectious than flu, and a balls-to-the-wall sound reminiscent of early days Arctic Monkeys, Foals, and Everything Everything.
Fresh from supporting the likes of The Magic Gang, Vitamin, and Alexis Kings, the band have also been featured on BBC Introducing with Gareth Lloyd, and have also performed on the Introducing stage at Rhythms of The World. As if that wasn't good enough, the band also organised and sold out a charity show for Teenage Cancer Trust at NME award winning venue, The Horn.
The band's newest release "This Is Not Ultraviolet" sees the 5 piece enter a lyrical and musical maturity beyond their years, placing them far and above the bustling St Albans scene, hailed by an almost sell out launch show on July 30th, and positive reviews from critics and music lovers alike.
Seamlessly combining the energy and melody of guitar pop with darker rock influences, 19-year-old Charlie Manning is a brilliant artist with a fresh and exciting sound.
A talented lyricist, Charlie perfectly captures the agony and ecstasy of youthful self-discovery. Whether performing solo or with his incredible band, his music bursts with colour and emotion, marrying beautiful acoustic tones with edgy melancholy and powerful dynamics.
Combining the upbeat, indie-pop stylings of Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys with the soulful imagery of George Ezra, the heartfelt rock and roll of James Bay and the earnest, story-telling songsmanship of Ed Sheeran, Charlie Manning is an exciting new prospect.
