Arcadia roots are a Worcestershire based band creating a sound that defies genre by combining many different styles including world, dance, reggae, blues and roots music.
The inspiration for the melodies and rhythms can be traced back too many late nights soaking up new music in the clubs and venues of the West Midlands through to the beaches and bars of west Africa.
The bands vibe has been described as 'earthy', 'psychedelic' and 'infectious'. This 5-piece dance band combine world, reggae and rock music to create a very unique & captivating sound.
The band draws on inspiration from their homeland, the picturesque Worcestershire countryside, along with individual travels across the globe to Asia, Africa and America. This has helped them create a fresh sound, culminating from so many influences and it’shard to pin them to a single genre.
The lyrical content of the music reflects the band's extensive travels. Themes cover some current political and environmental concerns (fracking, trophy hunting, and religious indoctrination) to time-honoured topics such as love, lust and the search for meaning. These words are placed in between swirling delay and reverbed guitar melodies grounded with a pounding rhythmic backbone.
This 4 piece band write a majority of their own music and their live performances can only be described as “Infectious” due to their ability to get the audience on their feet and moving to their roots rhythms.
The band members are time served musicians who have honed their craft working with other touring bands from the area.
Having appeared at Lakefest alongside ASWAD and Alabama 3 plus sharing the stage with Bastille and Declan McKenna at the famous Glastonbury Pilton Party 2017, the band rounded off a successful year with the publication and release of a 6 track EP.
