Video Premiere: Arcade Hearts ‘Running’

Arcade Hearts are a fuzzy, fresh four-piece from Gosport, Portsmouth making a name for themselves as one of the most exciting new live bands emerging in the UK.

Last single ‘Honey’ won the group support from the likes of Clash Magazine, Gigslutz and BBC Introducing Solent and was the kind of math-rock guitar, indie-dancefloor groover that would get the likes of Foals and the Maccabees in a bit of a disco lather.

Now new single ‘Running’ sees the boys sporting their best synth hooks and searing guitars once more.  The song boasts a pounding bassline just the right side of a slapfest while an urgent stop/start chorus reveals a band already possessing their own distinctive voice and clearly destined for big things.

A must-listen for fans of Marsicans and Wild Front.  The video sees Arcade Hearts getting down and dirty in a local multi-storey carpark, which only goes to show that their music really is on another level.  Natch.

Catch Arcade Hearts live on the following dates:

  • 21st October – Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth w/ Jerry Williams
  • 24th November – The Joiners, Southampton w/ Wild Front
  • 9th December – The Electric Ballroom, Bridport
