June 7, 2023: Today, Nashville’s The Arcadian Wild shared the new single “Lara” off their forthcoming album Welcome, which will be released on July 21 via Vere Music. They’ve also shared a video for the buoyant track, which is inspired by a friend who reached out seeking encouragement for their daughter, and a testament to believing in yourself and embracing the things that make you unique.

“This song has been through a lot,” explains guitarist Isaac Horn. “I started writing ‘Lara’ in the summer of 2019 after hearing from a friend that her daughter was going through a rough and challenging season of life. It began as a song of encouragement and empowerment for my friend, something she could listen to when the world was really wearing her down. Several months later in early 2020, the world became very heavy for us all. During lockdown, I continued to work through ‘Lara’ and it became a source of comfort. When the news turned from bad to worse, I would sit down and play through it, trying to remind myself that no matter how far off, something good was coming.
Anger, grief, injustice, and division was hitting me from all angles, and it was easy to hide away in myself. But as I continued to write this song for my friend, I was encouraged to stand firm in the things I believe to be true and to continue moving toward the person I want to be. In early 2022, we finally went into the studio to record ‘Lara’ and I was making lyric editions even as we were tracking. Almost three years after penning the first note, the song still had something new to show me. I remember stepping up to the microphone, looking at my bandmates, and thinking to myself, ‘We’re here. We actually made it.’ By January of 2022, ‘Lara’ had become a song celebrating resilience, a proof of hope. The person who finished writing this song was not the same person who began it. Too much had changed, and ‘Lara’ had been by my side the whole time.”
“Lara” follows previous singles “Dopamine” and “Corner”, which have earned praise from The Bluegrass Situation and No Depression, among others. Along their current and extensive US tour, the band have been highlighted by The Daily Progress, Bristol Herald Courier, The Daily Times, and performed on WDVX’s Blue Plate Special (video here). See list of upcoming tour dates below.

Consisting of guitarist Isaac Horn, mandolinist Lincoln Mick, and fiddler Bailey Warren, the genre-bending trio wrote and recorded Welcome in their hometown of Nashville, TN, working with engineer Logan Matheny (Colony House, Hiss Golden Messenger) and mixer Shani Gandhi (Sarah Jarosz, Sierra Hull). The band approached the recording sessions for the album as live as possible, embracing the organic feel of their concerts with the help of double bassist Erik Coveney (Sierra Hull, Dave Barnes), who joined them on the studio floor. The band doesn't record or perform with drums or percussion, but instead relies on their vocals and instrumentations to provide the backbeat.
“When we’re working on arrangements, we try to treat our band like a drum set: who is the kick, who is the snare, who is the crash, hi hat, etc. This approach helps each of us find our specific role in any given moment or section of the song, which again leads to a much more intentional and conversational arrangement.”
The Arcadian Wild cut their teeth playing house shows, where they learned to treat their audience like family, and released their self-titled debut to widespread praise in 2015, racking up nearly 50 million streams on Spotify alone. Heavy touring followed and the group returned in 2019 with a second full-length LP, Finch In The Pantry, which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart. When the pandemic forced the trio off the road in 2020, they shifted their focus to composing and recording a multi-movement song cycle that resulted in the 2021 EP Principum, which reached #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and helped earn the band performances everywhere from the Woody Guthrie Center to the Ryman Auditorium.
