about

"Arcadian Child are masters at sounding simultaneously cool as a block of ice and hot as hellfire, but the unshakeable pop melodies are the real key to this album’s success"
--- JJ Koczan, The Obelisk (USA)

"The opening few tracks – She's On My Mind, Little Late For Love and Rabbit Hole – offer delicious and dark twisted moments of 60s sounding Psychedelic Pop riffs but matched with a hard-edged Stoner Rock groove. The vocals are one of the main highlights of the album as they have elements of David Bowie running throughout them. [..]
--- Steve Howe, Outlaws of The Sun (UK)

“Τhere are proggish sides that often makes me think of late 70s Pink Floyd, the meticulous production gives a sound ala Foo Fighters, the singing and groove recall the glory of indie rock, with some Franz Ferdinand like energy, or Ghinzu’s masterful on the darker humored songs. You’ll probably hear even more, each of us relating through our personal experience, but that’s what makes this record so catchy! You can only feel at home with this déjà-vu feeling, intriguing you to recognize all these elements..[..]
---- Flyin Caillou - More Fuzz (FR)

"From the phased opening chords of "She's On my Mind", with its catchy vocal melody, right through to the countrified lysergic lament "Used" "Afterglow" is an album that delights and dazzles in equal measure"
--- Frazer Jones, Desert Psychlist (UK)

"Their music is a curious contemporary amalgam of many musical styles, being dark, being Eastern-influenced or flirting with shoegaze or even dare (successfully in my opinion) to engage with Psych"
--- Michail Lagopatis, TimeMazine Fanzine

"Arcadian Child, from Cyprus, is a strutting, twisted psychedelic beauty. Love the squalling guitars, like sirens out over the eastern Mediterranean"
--- SuperWorldIndieTunes (IR)

"Psicodelia sesentera con revisión contemporánea...Es evidente que Arcadian Child gusta de la psicodelia pop, pero no podríamos definirlo como una banda pop, eso sería demasiado simple. La banda mezcla ese origen revitalizándolo con sonidos stoner, guitarras que chirrían, afiladas como cuchillos.Disco para olvidarse de los complejos y muy recomendable para ampliar los horizontes musicales, dejándose engullir por sus sonidos de nueva psicodelia."
--- Roberto Lucas, La Habitacion (SP)

“Disco para olvidarse de los complejos y muy recomendable para ampliar los horizontes musicales, dejándose engullir por sus sonidos de nueva psicodelia. Su una psichedelia di fondo, molto è lo spazio lasciato alla voce, ruggente come tradizione impone ma lievemente effettata nei punti giusti a non suonare datata, come quando si sovrappone ai morbidi riff in odor di Stoner"
--- Maria Pia Diodati, Rockambula (IT)

"En huit titres, le quatuor expédie des tubes en puissance à mi-chemin entre rock psychédélique, garage-rock et énergies stoner avec des morceaux comme « She’s On My Mind », « Rabbit Hole » ou encore « Electric Red. [..]
--- Florian Soni Benga, Les Oreilles Curieuses (FR)

"Con influencias de bandas clásicas del psych de los 60’s como Jimmy Hendrix o Pink Floyd, así como de bandas contemporáneas como The Black Angels o Tame Impala; su primer trabajo muestra un crisol de sonoridades que dejan ver dichas influencias, especialmente las última"
---- Primero Fue El Sonido (MEX)

"Si estás búscando un álbum cinco estrellas, Arcadian Child lo tiene y se llama Afterglow"
---- ZoneKnights (ARG)

"Крепких радио-хитов имеется в обеих условных категориях – альбом хоть сейчас запускай в ротацию любого модного рок-радиовещани"
---- Igor Gorely, Recyclable Sounds (RU)

"Το Afterglow των Arcadian Child ξετυλίγεται σαν ένα κουβάρι που δεν φαίνεται να κομπιάζει πουθενά, ένα κιθαριστικό ξεφάντωμα χωρίς υπερβολές, ένα ώριμο φρούτο έτοιμο για βρώση. Και η γεύση του είναι θαυμάσια"
---- John Kastanaras, Merlin's Music Box (GR)

"Μείγμα ευφάνταστο και σίγουρα ευχάριστο στο αυτί, όπως και αποδοτικό ως προς την «κολλητικότητά» του, καθώς οι guitar-driven συνθέσεις τους δεν θα σας αφήσουν να αλλάξετε δίσκο εύκολα"
---- George Korbakis, Straightonmusic (GR)

"Με τέτοιο groove είναι δύσκολο να τους αντισταθείς όντως “Irresistible”, κιθάρες που δημιουργούν το δικό τους θέμα, ένα μπάσο να δίνει ρυθμό και τα τύμπανα να σφυροκοπούν θαρρείς σε παρέλαση. Η φωνή αντρικά μελαγχολική, σαν να στέκει τολμηρά απέναντι στα πάντα"
--- Kiki Iliadou, RockinAthens (GR)

Track Name: She's On My Mind
She’s rolling down, she’s rolling hard
So don’t disarm, cause she’s likes guns
She shoots to kill, so don’t blink twice
She’ll crush your soul, she feels like ice

She’s on my mind

Please go ahead and call her name
She is not your friend, now take the blame
Cry out loud, laugh in hard
Keep on rolling in the mud

She’s on my mind
Track Name: Little Late For Love
I need some piece of mind
To cope with this
The abyss of my reality
Just swallows me in hard

I’m a scream at night
Just a string attached
I just wonder why
Did the boy should die this way?

Now it’s a little late to love him,
It’s a little late for love
And all have gone way down to shite
Now it’s a little late to cry

And I say stay, and I say stay
Ohhh

All these drunken minds
Lead to compromise
To the apocalyptic era
Of our time

I need some piece of mind
And a touch of love
To proclaim a world
of misery and endless, hopeless lust

Now it’s a little late to love him,
It’s a little late for love
And all have gone way down to shite
Now it’s a little late to cry

All these hidden doors, that lead the way
They’ll be mine again, they’ll be safe
In illusions and enigmas, we shall bathe
You’ll be mine again, you’ll be safe
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
How deep can you go?
Can you trick your mind?
Are you deep in the zone?
Can you deceive your soul?

Would you walk bare footed at the edge of the unknown?
Would you drown your heroes?
Would you trade your cravings for a glimmer of hope?
Would you go?

Way down, way down, way down
In the rabbit hole
Way down, way down, way down,
In the rabbit hole

Holding on to the thought
Thinking that you've won
Play me down today
Let it take control

Would you walk bare footed at the edge of the unknown?
Would you lie to save me?
Would you trade your cravings for a glimmer of hope?
Would you go?

Way down, way down, way down
In the rabbit hole
Way down, way down, way down,
In the rabbit hole
Track Name: Electric Red
Make it loud make it heard,
for our dreams are turning red
Make believe that this is fine,
shine on don’t act surprised
Why don't we go fight them hard,
So we can feel as one
It makes much sense to act surprised
But please don’t ask the reason why

Don’t ask me why

Save the children, save them first
all is bright but make no sense
keep on dreaming when things fail
its yours its free its great
why don’t we go fight them hard
so we can feel as one?
It makes much sense to act surprised
But please don’t ask the reason why

Don’t ask me why
Track Name: Irresistible
Counting days in time
Trying to be in control
Spend your loving cash
Silence bless us all

Somewhere between
The drama and the lies
I’d like to think we have
A simple loving mind

Oh how we all feel irresistible x4

Down the broken road
You will find us all
Don’t caress their hopes
Love our absent soul

Solemnly abide
To all that make you smile
All things in between
Burn in melting ice

Oh how we all feel irresistible x4
Track Name: Run
Watch the life we dreamt being gently swept away
All the beauty can’t erase the harm we’ve done
Just another complication for us to explain
All the beauty can’t prevent what follows on

Run to save yourself from everything that you hold onto
Run to save yourself from you
The sense of joy you get is nothing more than a plain illusion
Run to save yourself from you

Feels like time has tainted every single fray
Nor my feelings can explain the pain we feel
Just a lack of motivation for us to stay
All the beauty can’t erase our septic minds

Run to save yourself from everything that you hold onto
Run to save yourself from you
The sense of joy you get is nothing more than a plain illusion
Run to save yourself from you
Track Name: Afterglow
You make me feel like the only man alive
Loved and caressed by your controlling lies
Addicted and free, I'm certainly involveed
You make me feel like an empty broken soul

Afterglow

You make me feel like the only man alive
Comes in waves, deserting me in time
I can't stand to doubt things anymore
You make me feel like a boy you never loved

Afterglow
Track Name: Used
I guess I’ll give my last breath
For you to breath, for you to breath,
I’ll haunt your deepest nightmare
So you can sleep,

Every time you feel like falling
I'll take your hand and keep you safe
Throw myself into the fire for you
So you can be

I used to love you but I still do

So time, has washed things away
And now I know
I may at times have failed us,
But I’m still there, your silent knight

Every time, it finds its way at you
I’ll scream my lungs out
Live to fight, another day for you
So you can be

I used to love you but I still do
