Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Sydney's DEEP SEA ARCADE's reverberated psychedelia recalls guitar based music from across the ages yet with a character and charm that is undeniably unique.

The group began as a songwriting and home recording project for founding members and school mates Nic McKenzie and Nick Weaver when they were in their mid teens. Using 4-track tape recorders, broadcast microphones and unconventional computer programs they created a sinister backdrop to contrast with their penchant for pop song structure and melody.

After years developing a large catalogue of demo recordings McKenzie and Weaver banded with guitarists James Manson and Simon Relf and drummer Carlos Adura, giving the music
an energy and scope that was previously out of reach.

Long awaited debut album Outlands had a worldwide 2012 release through Ivy League Records, with singles heavily supported in Australia by Triple J and FBI and in the UK by BBC 1, BBC 6, and XFM.

Aside from a recent sold out album tour across Australian major cities as well as having a spot on Australia's prestigious Big Day Out festival, the band have been on the road with Noel
Gallagher's High Flying Birds, The Charlatans, Girls, Kaiser Chiefs, Cloud Control and Modest Mouse. They have also toured the UK and Europe extensively, including appearances at Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival, The Great Escape In Brighton, Liverpool Sound City, Berlin Independent Night, Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and sold out shows in London.

After the warm reception given to Outlands, the band are keen to keep the ball rolling, residing in London over the English Spring and Summer of 2013 to complete album number
two and perform a growing list of festival dates like Secret Garden Party, The Great Escape, Where The Wild Things Are (Netherlands) and Live At Leeds.
