Reliably informed

Whitley Bay’s Arcade Skies’ new track Sugar Sugar has a dreamy, bleached-out summer sky feel to it. The track is fuelled by a melody on acoustic clarinet, drenched in reverb and delay, which swoons in and out of the consciousness of the mix, pushing its way to the fore past drum loops, 80s-inflected synth pads, a female vocal that equally washes itself watercolour with delay and a male vocal, subliminally low in the mix.

There’s an obvious sonic reference to the Little Fluffy Clouds of The Orb in the let-it-wash-over-you ambient dance feel. A perfect track for driving past The Spanish City on one of the few blisteringly hot summer days Whitley Bay might have, eating melted Opal Fruits.
