Today Arcy Drive are back with, “Time Shrinks,” the follow-up to the raucous garage of “Wicked Styley.” This one finds Nick departing the electric fretboard in favor of acoustic guitar strums, also coaxing Brooke from behind the kit to harmonize on a track that feels like a real surprise from the young band.
FLOOD Magazine, who premiered the track yesterday, praised it for bringing to mind “the upbeat indie-folk scene of the early-’10s as well as more pop-influenced bands on a nearby orbit, such as Grouplove.”
“It’s our first acoustic track,” the band says. “Although we have an indie sound, the roots of our songwriting is largely credited to folk music. Time Shrinks is a folkier, simple, and light hearted song that was written for anyone in their early twenties who is having trouble finding their place. We had great time bringing this song to life, and hope Uncle Neil would be happy.”
