ARIMEA - Release A Fresh Take On Nu-Metal "Nostalgia"

Arimea unleash a refreshingly raw approach to nu-metal with their latest releases ‘Nostalgia’ and ‘Rinse and Repeat’. Weaving the elements of 90s and early-2000s sounds that first inspired them into their already well- established take on modern alt-metal, the band have crafted a heady brew of nu-metal, alternative rock and progressive metal, with shades of hardcore and hip-hop thrown in for good measure, that promises to be your new favourite sound.

Since the release of their tech-heavy debut EP 'Castle Bravo', and the subsequent ethereal 'Wish' EP, Arimea have brought their high-energy live performances to venues across the UK, such as the O2 Oxford Academy alongside Chapter & Verse and Press to Meco. Through the powerful, energetic vocals of frontwoman Whitney Cooper, which flow seamlessly with ferocious guitarwork and crushing drums, Arimea have gone from strength to strength, amassing a respectable following of loyal fans.

Having collaborated with Machine [As It Is, Amity Affliction], Arimea are ready to release a refined but punishing set of singles that kicks off with ‘Nostalgia’, and its B-side, ‘Rinse and Repeat’.

"'Nostalgia explores the idea of telling a lie so much, you start to believe it yourself, and you can live a different reality...and you can kind of hide in that."

Whitney Cooper, Vocalist

‘Nostalgia’ is a multifaceted exploration of the illusory truth effect that represents an important step in Arimea's evolution, introducing more progressive tendencies to the playful and evocative qualities previously on display. A dark and brooding track that, like its namesake, draws inspiration from the band's youth, 'Nostalgia' harkens back to the building blocks of genre- defining bands such as Korn, Deftones and Linkin Park, whilst injecting a uniquely modern flavour.

The B-side, ‘Rinse and Repeat’, is a short and sweet venture carried by mosh-inducing grooves, and jerking relentlessly between powerful choruses and filthy breakdowns, demonstrating the band’s aggressive and chaotic capabilities.
