about

Arcadia is the first single from lifted from the band’s upcoming LP, the follow up to critically acclaimed album Everything Fades to Blue. It sets the scene for an record dealing with a planet in crisis.

Arcadia is inspired by the idea of the ancient garden, an idyll, a place of innocence and abundance. This vision is skewed with the concept of fire being introduced to earth dwellers by the god Prometheus in ancient Greek mythology. The introduction of fire to civilisation may be seen as the beginning of harnessing energy, creating tools, weapons, industrialisation. Fire, in its natural state when running wild can be destructive, and global warming sees these patterns of fire threat and its ferocity increasing.

Thinking also of the story of Pandora’s jar, the song reflects on this repetitious theme in history of curiousity, playing with fire, playing with nature and unleashing uncontrollable energies into the world.

Album two is due in 2020.

lyrics

Arcadia

Running through the streets with a gun in your hand
Playing war games with the sun on your back
Making up the rules in shifting sands
Seeing the light slipping through your hands

I dream of a golden age
I dream of a lost place

Dreaming of a time when we were young
Dreaming of a place of water and sun
Playing with fire in the midday sun
Unravelling into oblivion

Arcadia – echoes of human behaviour
Arcadia – echoes of human behaviour

I’m gonna run all day
I’m gonna run with flames
I’m gonna run away
From the end of days, from the end of days

I dream of a golden age
I dream of a lost place

Arcadia – echoes of human behaviour
Arcadia – echoes of human behavior

I’m gonna run all day
I’m gonna run with flames
I’m gonna run away
From the end of days, from the end of days

Running through the trees with a knife in your hand
Staying out late with the sun in your veins
Waking up cold in a strange place
Seeing the light slipping from your face
