With its blend of bedroom psychedelia and golden-era pop, Arlie's music takes you into a cosmically nostalgic, retro-futurist world. And considering the meticulously crafted nature of the recorded sound, the songs translate surprisingly well to the stage -- as anyone who's seen Arlie can tell you, the shows are a distinct phenomenon of their own. The 5-piece, lead by songwriter and frontman Nathaniel Banks, met as undergrads at Vanderbilt and Belmont, and self-released their first single “Big Fat Mouth” in early 2017. A year later, the song has been streamed close to 2.5 million times and second single “Didya Think” is not far behind. Their vibrant live set, which has grown through raucous Nashville house parties and local radio festivals to two sold out shows at Nashville’s The End in December 2017 and April 2018, garnered them a exciting slate of shows at SXSW 2018, support dates with Cold War Kids and Rostam (Vampire Weekend), and summer festival appearances at Bonnarroo, Forecastle, and Sloss. Later this year, Arlie plan to release their debut EP and hit the road for a year full of touring and new music.
