Kill The GiantsArcadia

Arcadia is the new album by St Albans' collective Kill The Giants. This is their 4th album and is inspired by their love of the 1980s, amusement arcades and video games.

The band have received rave reviews from the likes of Hotpress, Steve Lamacq from BBC 6 Music & John Kennedy from Radio X.

Kill The Giants have mixed up genres at will on their previous albums but have gone back to the electronica of the 1980s for Arcadia. The album is influenced by 80's pop, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and New Order.

The first single from the album is When I Feel Alone which is dedicated to all those who suffer from depression.

RnR Magazine said of the album:

"It's both gorgeous and unexpected, as is everything about this unique album, which so skilfully blends innovation, disco beats, sampling and more. Fabulous!"

Hotpress the influential Irish music magazine loved their first album "For The Gold" and said:

"Kill The Giants, a genre-bending outfit who manage to cram thrash metal, hip-hop, classical and world music into their particularly madcap cacophony. Even more weirdly, it works. "

The influential BBC 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq recently featured the band on his 6 Music Recommends show and said of the album:

"Its atmospheric, emotive and sometimes baffling. I like it."

John Kennedy the champion of new music from Radio X said the band "Sounded Fantastic!."

The Odd Creative blog said;

"St Albans’ genre-bending group Kill The Giants are back with their signature bizzare wall-of-noise. Fronted by Mark Christopher Lee of The Pocket Gods, this band seek to include as many divergent genres as they can and force them to work together, whether they like it or not."
