London-based synthwave stalwarts New Arcades have a debut album on the horizon. The first single Solace was released on Friday 9 August to all good online digital stores.
Having recently signed a two-album deal with Outland Recordings, New Arcades’ debut is primed to explode on the synth and retrowave scene since their first single release back in 2013.
Solace, mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Killers, The 1975) is the first of two singles before the album release in October this year. Known for their vocalised electronic and synth tracks, New Arcades have opted to blast this self-produced instrumental out of the blocks first, which will be followed in September by the second single.
Exploding into your consciousness, SOLACE arrives with a Replicant's knuckle-punch, awakening you from your synth-slumber. Power beats and atmospheric synths lead a retro-inspired melody that’s both upbeat and inspiring. Prepare for an unforgettable Synthwave journey across the neon sands of time. Put it on LOUD - this track is sure to become an old friend on your Synthwave playlists....
