Arcadian Kicks....

Anyone who has followed Spools Paradise since I started the blog in late October last year will be aware I don't do too may postings on "new" bands.

Over the next few weeks I intend to redress the balance slightly and post some musings and sounds from newish bands that have caught my intention.

Fisrt off is a five piece from South Staffordshire called Arcadian Kicks. Two girls, three boys all in their late teens who are heavily influenced by the likes of Blondie, early Fleetwood Mac and Led Zepellin and are managed by Jon Brookes from The Charlatans.

Combining melodic harmonies with hard-edged sax, soulful guitar and pounding rhythms, this is one young band that are worth checking out. They have described their sound as "Spectoresque, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin... a bit of light shoegaze and Yeah Yeah Yeahs mixed up"

Don't know much more about them but I like what I have heard so far....hopefully you will too....
