'Arcadia' is the new single from Nottingham Electronic duo APRIL TOWERS, the latest act to emerge from Nottingham's creative scene. The city has undergone something of a musical resurgence in recent months, with the likes of Indiana, Sleaford Mods and Ronika all having released critically acclaimed albums.
Despite having only formed in August 2013, Alex Noble (vocals, guitars & keyboards) and Charlie Burley (production, samples, guitars & keyboards) have already received tremendous support from BBC Introducing's Dean Jackson, as well as plays on Radio 1 from both Huw Stephens and Fearne Cotton.
Combining influences ranging from pioneering artists such as Jon Hopkins, Aphex Twin, LCD Soundsystem and Radiohead and a pop sensibility that recalls the likes of Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and Cut Copy.
Forthcoming single 'Arcadia' highlights the duo's knack for marrying incisive pop hooks with dizzying electronica.
