robchez Sit down, relax and let this this fusion of sound transport you to another place, another time. Drift to the shores and mountains of the Eastern Mediterranean, empty your mind and enjoy the trip

Marcin Wielewski Lighweight and pleasurable psychedelia, that enitces with folk/pagan vibe. Favorite track: Sour Grapes.

Harry Harrison These guys are great. Bringing you the Psychedelic Stoner sound but also incorporating Celtic, Arabic and Prog Rock signatures and timing. Not to mention the back-masking. Although they do not sound like them; they somehow remind me of Indie Rock legends ‘Built To Spill’. Maybe it their quirkiness or unusualness of sound. Whatever it is I’m enjoying it. I think Protopsycho is a return to the greatness they displayed in Afterglow. Favorite track: Bitter Tea.

Reviews ⚡️

"This is the album that you need to have; it’s just that good" It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine (SI)

“A trippy, mesmerizing listening experience.” Everything Is Noise (UK)

“An intoxicating slice of skillful psychedelic stoner rock.” Maximum Volume Music (UK)

"A big step forward!" La Habitación 235 (SP)

“An enchanting listen from edge to center” Doomed & Stoned (USA)

"Without a doubt, we are facing a band that is established in the scene" DenpaFuzz (SP)

"Ritualistic, meditative and immersive" El Coyote (PT)

"The themes give us that unique feeling of being on a hallucinogenic trip" World of Metal (PT)

“Eight tracks of sublime, often uplifting effervescent psych rock.” The Sleeping Shaman (UK)

“Mystic, hypnotic, tripped out and unique psychedelic rock with eastern folkloric vibe.” Droning Earth (UK)

“Arcadian Child are a band evolving at an alarming rate and the new album "Protopsycho" is testament to that evolution” Desert Psychlist (UK)

“Psychedelic, raw and intoxicating, Arcadian Child creates an electrifying blend of rock, intensity and purification starting from Eastern roots and ending on the fringes of the Western psyche.” Mic (GR)

"Listening to Protopsycho muted my cerebral filters so let me just recount what poured out through my keyboard while it was happening" Flying Diddlesticks (US)

"Protopsycho is an album which breaks away from the soporific nonsense usually portrayed by neo-psychedelia by strapping a big pair of balls to its sound whilst staying as cool as a cucumber” Powerplay Magazine (UK)

"An excellent album at the end of the year! "La Planete du Stoner (FR)

“Arcadian Child are the epitome of psychedelic rock” Musipedia Of Metal (UK)

"Snakecharm” la bien nommée introduit cet album où plane l’ombre d’un Naxatras. Avec cependant une recherche plus totale de l’intégration des thèmes orientaux dans la musique" Desert - Rock (FR)

"Ο συνδυασμός είναι καθηλωτικός και ευρηματικός. Το άλμπουμ ακούγεται ολόκληρο με μιαν ανάσα, σε κερδίζει ακαριαία" Το Υπόγειο (GR)

"Αποτελούμενος από οκτώ, trippy psych-rock κομμάτια, ο νέος δίσκος συγκροτεί μία δυναμική, μυστηριακή ατμόσφαιρα, προκαλώντας μας να γίνουμε οι μύστες του οπτικοακουστικού τελετουργικού των Arcadian Child, με αχόρταγο ενδιαφέρον, από την αρχή έως το τέλος της ακρόασης" RockinAthens (GR)

about

Arcadian Child Limassol, Cyprus

Psyched, potent and intoxicating, they deliver their diverse rock melded with tripped-out ambience, hallucinogenic patterns and cathartic outbursts. Boasting a heady swagger, sophisticated riffs and purposeful lyrics their music echoes far and wide.
