lloydd Enjoyed the bands first two releases but this their latest release is something special. The music is sprinkled with Middle- Eastern charm. This album has a warmth to it that you do not find very often in this genre. Arcadian Child are at the top of their game with this album. Such a quality release simply outstanding Favorite track: Snakecharm.

Colin M. If you like your psych, well, psyched out, you will love Arcadian Child's latest. The east/west fusion is superbly done and helps set them apart from other psych contemporaries. I dig it! Favorite track: Raisin' Fire.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors With this new album Arcadian Child dive deep into their Middle East heritage to deliver a fresh sound into the Neo-psychedelia scene. Excellent one!

A Rebel Waves Records release. Dig into Ripple's garage/psych imprint for some tasty trashy garage psych vibes!!

New Arcadian Child album “Protopsycho” finds the mercurial Cyprus psychedelic rock quartet experimenting with new sounds to progress and evolve. With a sound that channels the squealing sirens of the Mediterranean up to the dark bellows of the West, Arcadian Child deliver their ritualistic psych-rock melded with tripped-out ambience, hallucinogenic patterns, and cathartic outbursts. Boasting a heady swagger, sophisticated riffs, and purposeful lyrics, their music echoes far and wide.

Lead single “Bitter Tea” is described by frontman Panagiotis Georgiou as, “an honest track fighting self-doubt, pushing back our anxieties and fears."
