Track Of The Week #4

Ash - 'Arcadia'

Another week another chance to see a band that I've loved for years.

Now, you may or may not be aware of what Ash are up to these days. For those out of the loop; they're releasing a new single every fortnight for a year, with these being themed on the alphabet and therefore being titled 'The A-Z Series'. As of Monday they've reached the letter C and put out the strongest single in the series yet; 'Arcadia'.

Sounding very much like Ash, 'Arcadia' also manages to pack in an understated electric piano and plenty of 'ooh ooh's into the backing vocals whilst the lyrics seem to tell the tale of The Odyssey with all of the usual rock n roll meets sci-fi imagery that Tim Wheeler excels at. Needless to say, it sounded very good in the confines of Rotherham's tiny venue TheVault (so small that bassist Mark was unable to stand anywhere near the middle of the stage, due to height reasons) last night.

'Arcadia' is easily one of the tracks of the year and if you've not subscribed to The A-Z Series then this should persuade you to part with thirteen of your hard earned pounds in order to get the whopping twenty six downloads. There's no video for this track yet however.
