INTERVIEWED: LIFE AT THE ARCADE

Welcome to Interviewed, a series of chats and discussions with artists, musicians, bloggers and creators all over the world.

Today we’re joined by Liverpool based indie band, Life At The Arcade!

The last few weeks have been wild for this lot, on top of completing a UK tour seeing them play in some of the country’s most beloved venues, and see them stopping at every service station along the way to survive, they’ve finally been able to release their long-awaited debut EP From The Basement. I had the pleasure of seeing these lads perform at Liverpool’s iconic Zanzibar Club a couple of weeks back, to put it succintly, these guys killed it. A hometown show isn’t the easiest to play, but they filled out the venue, had the people dancing all night and cheering non-stop. Life At The Arcade made a tiny venue feel like a stadium, everything they did reeked of a band that’s having a long-awaited major homecoming, not a band that’s freshly dropped their first EP.

 

Without rattling on about the show, let’s get into the interview with Paddy of Life At The Arcade.

D: You guys have just come off of a UK tour, a banging one, how was tour life? And how was it to play the Zanzibar, one of the best venues in Liverpool?
P: Our tour was class. I think we are masters of the service station meal deals now, we know what’s the best and what to avoid (the Tesco chicken mayo’s are belters).
D: The Zanzibar is probably the most prestigious venue in Liverpool and to pack it out like we did, we couldn’t of been any happier.
On that note, what is your favourite venue in Liverpool? It’s hard to top the Zanzibar.
P: There’s loads of great venues in Liverpool at the moment, however the newly opened ‘Jacaranda Phase One’ has a great vibe and it’s quickly becoming the hub to go to in Liverpool at the
moment.
