From ARCANE ROOTS front man, Andrew Groves:
“Curtains was a re-evaluation of what we actually wanted to achieve as a band. Unlike our 14 year old selves, the idea of chasing the conventional rock-stardom dream & all those things we could never be, had now left a sour taste in our mouths and and that it was time to really evaluate what kind of mark we would like to leave behind as a band.”
“Our only intention was to purely focus on the excitement of making music together & concentrate on whatever we felt to be the best piece of music at that particular time. We’ve only ever wanted to become better as musicians, and in order to do that we felt that we had to leave behind any notion of what we were meant to sound like as a band.”
“Both thematically and lyrically, it’s about trying to find a way to keep your head above the waves and make something beautiful, like a shining beacon to prove that you existed and cherished the life you were given. Now, more than ever, it felt like we all needed to be reminded of that, as the inescapable weight of world looms over us.”
Since the release of the hugely acclaimed ‘Heaven & Earth’ EP last October, ARCANE ROOTS have toured and played shows with the likes of Biffy Clyro (across Europe), Enter Shikari (at Alexandra Palace), Fightstar, Jimmy Eat World as well as play this years Reading and Leeds, Y Not and 2000 Trees festivals.
