New release: Like Fireworks - Arches

Yesterday saw the long anticipated release of the full length debut video by new Glasgow band Arches, and what a stunning debut it is.

Consisting of previous members of various Glasgow bands, Arches are certainly no strangers to the struggles of the music industry. Vocalist Michael Rice (Yashin), guitarist Barry Morrell (Young States), drummer Niall McGarvie (Jocasta Sleeps) and bassist Andrew Johnston come together to produce a wonderfully promising debut and stamp their mark on the music scene. Like Fireworks features delicate guitars and alluring vocals which build to huge choruses and rousing harmonies, completing a perfect introduction as to what this Glaswegian four piece have to offer.

With almost a thousand hits on YouTube in it's first few hours of release and having already gained support and airplay from Alex Baker on his Kerrang! radio show, it's safe to say this won't be the last we hear from Arches.
