The Arcade boys were up with the lark to play an acoustic set on Sally Taylor's Saturday morning show which included the first airing of their new single.

Hailing from Bournemouth and Southampton, the indie four-piece got together at University and three years later became a band.

The lads have recently put every penny into recording their new single, 'All the things you said...' which has been produced at the famous Foel Studios, which are based in a secluded valley in the Mid Wales hills.

The band are made up of brothers Ross and Mike Rolph, Daniel Ratcliff & Matt Skeats and claim they can get even the most 'static' people tapping their feet and swinging their fringes.

Crystal Arcade write songs based on their life experiences, despite having an average age of just 21 they assured Sally that they have plenty to go on!

2008 has already been a phenomenal year for them with gigs supporting Palladium and Alphabeat, as well as becoming one of the 12 semi finalists at the Dorset unsigned music awards.
