My first impression of “Arcadia” :  A fun and high-energy track that’s infectiously exhilarating.  I am impressed with the stop motion styled music video which matches the vibe of the song perfectly. Very well done!

My take :  I dig indie rock songs with an explosive style that is unrelenting yet kept under control and “Arcadia” definitely showcases this trait.  I love how the upbeat tempo seems to burrow its way underneath my skin with ease, demanding and pushing my body to get up and move no matter what I am doing at the time.   The melodies seem somewhat familiar but freshly done and the instrumentation screams out to me this band knows how to make one catchy tune.  FAIRCHILD continues to build momentum and have recently released ‘SADAKO’, an intriguing 2nd EP that deserves everyone’s attention.  It definitely has mine.  Pick up ‘SADAKO’ here!

TMH RATING: 8/10 AMAZING

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!
