Confession: this was supposed to be published a couple of months ago, but for one reason or another (almost all related to management incompetence here at RRP) it got stuck in the system. A bit like that important tax demand you’ll find under the sofa if you look just a bit harder…

New Arcades came to my attention when they supported Empathy Test at their EP launch gig at the end of November last year. It’s an ideal match, with both groups generating gorgeous synth-pop sounds. Empathy Test bring the ethereal atmosphere, while with Wherever You Are New Arcades supply the energy.

As a bonus / to make up for not letting you know about this fantastic track sooner, here’s a remix of Wherever You Are. Be sure to follow New Arcades on Soundcloud and look out for their next single.
