Ginger and Nuts’ resident music guru, Diana Cavazos Woloszyk, straight out of Chicago, USA, just dropped another mind-blowing review! This time, she takes us on a wild ride with a British synth-pop rock band called The Last Arcade and their killer new single, ‘Time Of Our Lives’.

When it comes to this track, Diana sums it up perfectly, saying, “It’s a song of reflection of how much we miss our childhood days and how much our parents have impacted our lives and also our loved ones that we remember that are no longer with us, and those that we are blessed to still have with us.”

Here’s Diana’s Full Review…

    Review | The Last Arcade Ginger and Nuts

Step into the Retro-licious World of The Last Arcade

Hailing from Liverpool, England, The Last Arcade is about resurrecting those 80s vibes fused with modern synth-pop and rock. Get ready for a blast from the past! They draw inspiration from legendary acts like Foreigner, Aha, Depeche Mode, and Genesis and newer sensations like The Midnight and The Weeknd. Trust us, they’ve struck a seriously addictive blend of the classic and the contemporary.

Let’s get to know these superhumans, shall we? The Last Arcade comprises the extraordinary vocalist Ste McNally, the axe-wielding maestro Paul Garrett, and the synth wizard Steve Erickson. Ste McNally shot to stardom as part of the sensational band BBMak, and you might remember their irresistible hit, ‘Back Here’. 

Paul Garrett rocked the stage alongside Bryan Adams with his band 10 Reasons. At the same time, Steve Erickson has brought his musical magic to projects for Disney, BBMak, Sky TV, and even the legendary Andy McLusky of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Talk about an all-star lineup!

They burst onto the scene with their debut single, ‘When We Were Young’, and the world just couldn’t get enough. The track scored over 50,000 streams on Spotify in its first month, and that’s just the beginning. Radio stations worldwide had no choice but to hit repeat. The Last Arcade didn’t stop there—oh no! They’ve dropped six more sensational singles, each one making waves on Spotify playlists and turning heads on international airwaves.

And now, brace yourself for their latest masterpiece, ‘Time of Our Lives’, the grand finale before their full-length album, ‘Timelines’, hits the shelves.
