Arcane Roots at The Scala, London - live review
Venue: The Scala, London
Complex three-piece wow at sold-out show
Arcane Roots have a well-deserved reputation for fiery live performances. Over the last few years, the Kingston‑upon-Thames three-piece have honed their gigging chops on the festival circuit and have supported explosive trios Muse and Biffy Clyro on European tours.
Their almost effortless ability to deliver complex time signatures while doing their best to self-inflict whiplash has earned them a rightfully large, equally frenzied fan base. So it’s really no surprise that a sold-out Scala is straining with fans tonight – latecomers have to fight through knotted crowds half an hour before Arcane Roots even hit the stage. The thrum of adrenaline is already so palpable you can almost taste it.
