Prog metal specialists Arkive have announced the release of their sophomore EP, the alluringly titled out Sonder Friday November 3rd and to celebrate they’ve dropped the stunning music video for second single, ‘Luminous’.
‘Luminous’ quickly made its mark internationally, with praise coming initially from Europe thanks to its premiere via Dreambound. Very quickly amassing views with 17k views in only four days, giving the young band the chance to represent Aus Metal to a whole host of fans in the USA and Europe.
A song about leading your life from the heart and one’s self, ‘Luminous’ is a statement lead true by a band committed to their sound, their craft and their vision.
“For me the song is an internal conversation and is a progression, fear, anxiety and acceptance, recognizing and forgiving yourself and then moving forward.” – Vocalist, Court Walters
‘Luminous’ follows the equally complex and intricate ‘Acquiescence’ which saw Dream On Dreamers Marcel Gadacz sharing vocal duties.
Arkiveare no strangers to spending time with the country’s best, having shared stages for the likes of Buried In Verona, Make Them Suffer, Polaris, Belle Haven, DVSR and Pridelands.
Sonder was manifest from within Melbourne’s quiet suburbs and refined through sessions at Oakland Studios by Beau McKee and Jamie Marinos, then mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc. As the pieces finally fall together for Arkive, see it all come together on the forthcoming ‘Sonder’.
‘Luminous’ is available through Spotify & Itunes now.
