Song of the day: Deep Sea Arcade feat. Megan Washington – "Bonnie And Clyde"

July 7, 2013

Here are Deep Sea Arcade and Megan Washington with something a little bit psychedelic and a little bit groovy. It’s from an album of French songs interpreted by Australian musicians. Yes, really.

Song of the day: Deep Sea Arcade – "Girls"

May 3, 2012

I do like the Internet. I just found out from Twitter that a song by Australian band Deep Sea Arcade has been made available free for download. The good news about this is that the song is not horrible at all (i.e., it’s actually worth downloading).

Here’s Deep Sea Arcade with a mighty decent imitation of dreamy Britpop:

By the way, I found this publicity photo of the band:

I don’t think that does them any favours whatsoever. I guess they were going for an “arty” look, and I’d agree by saying it’s terribly arty. Unfortunately, when I say “terribly” here I don’t mean “very”, I mean terribly.

Song of the day: Deep Sea Arcade – "Steam"

April 6, 2012

Some time ago I played you “Lonely In Your Arms“, a song from Australian band Deep Sea Arcade that was released ahead of the band’s forthcoming debut album. Well, the album is no longer forthcoming. (I’m really trying very hard here not to say “It came fifth!”.) It’s now been released and it’s called Outlands. The whole thing has been posted on Soundcloud if you’re keen on auditioning the little beastie.

Here’s one of the tracks from Outland that I found instantly appealing:

Now I have another album to buy.

Song of the day: Deep Sea Arcade – "Lonely In Your Arms"

November 25, 2011

Here’s a new Australian band I saw (and heard) by chance the other day on Australian television music program Rage. It’s wonderfully retro:

Deep Sea Arcade – “Lonely In Your Arms (2009)

I like that. A lot. (Even though the singer sounds disconcertingly like Billy Corgan.)

Here’s another one of their songs:

Yep. Retro Plus.

I’m looking forward to buying their album when it’s released.

Potentially Uninteresting Sidenote: as far as I can tell, Deep Sea Arcade is not related to an arcade band from Canada, an arcade band from America, or an arcade band from America in the 1990s.
