Banks Arcade has announced their debut album, titled Future Lovers.
Banks Arcade has honed an ambitious style of melodic metal, electronic and rock.
“The pandemic definitely allowed the space to have no expectations. For me, I’ve been so busy over the past five years, grinding to try and make this music thing work, and this finally freed up the time to not have to go to work and to focus. I basically went back to New Zealand to my family home where everything is cosy and nice, I was in nature in New Zealand and was just able to wake up every day and write.
“Everything just felt right. It all was very smooth, and we had so much fun doing it. I think when we all look back to that time, we felt like we were making something that was going to change it all for us, and we felt that we were making songs that were going to resonate with the industry and the people. And obviously you’re not sure, because at that point we hadn’t had any validation. But we all felt the same; I’m pretty sure that people are going to like this.” -Vocalist Joshua O'Donnell
