Arcadia Roots are a Worcestershire based band that deliver an exciting hypnotic blend of Trance, Dance, Reggae and Roots music.
The bands vibe has been described as ‘earthy’, ‘psychedelic’ and ‘infectious’. This 4 piece dance band combine world, reggae and rock music to create a very unique & captivating sound.
The lyrical content of the music reflects the band’s extensive travels. Themes cover some current political and environme
ntal concern’s (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.
Arcadia Roots 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.
Following a 2017 summer of festivals and high-profile gigs, notably sharing the Glastonbury Festival Pilton-Party stage with Bastille and Declan McKenna plus headlining the BBC stage at Lakefest alongside Aswad, Alabama 3 and The Charlatans, the band decided to record and relea
se 6 of their most popular tracks to round off a very successful year.
Currently, the band have a number of 2018 UK festivals booked as well as a UK tour taking in venues up and down the country to “Spread the Word” that is Arcadia Roots.
The bands current release is doing well and a new CD and video are planned for later in the year.
