Southend newcomers with a sting in the tail...

Arcaves formed almost by accident.

The band members were travelling around Scandinavia, when their car broke down in a remote Swedish forest.

Opting to sell the car and purchase flights home, the musicians whiled away those hours in the airport by forming a band.

Based in Southend, Arcaves emerged in 2015 to win Essex Undiscovered before opening the Sure Arena at V Festival.

New cut 'Man Enough' is expertly composed synth pop, with Arcaves delivering a real sting in the tail.

Tune in below.
