Billingtons Talent Showcases Presents : ARKAYLA !
Arkayla are Cal Blakebrough (Vocals/Guitar), Finley Rubens (Guitar), Theo Savage (Bass), and Patrick Hanbury (Drums). Formed in 2020 in Manchester, England, this explosive new four-piece have quickly gained a reputation for their charged (and often sold out) live shows and unique songs. Influenced by the rich musical history of the northwest, including The Beatles, The Smiths, and The LA’s, Arkayla combines stadium-sized guitar riffs, beautiful harmonies, and raw vocals to create a sound that is reminiscent of the past, but is truly their own.
The lads have already seen local radio play on BBC Introducing Lancashire with their debut single Calling Time, and they are thrilled to announce their headline show at the Night and Day Cafe, which will serve as the release party. Discussing the single, one half of Arkayla’s songwriting duo Finley Rubens affirmed “There’s a gap in the market right now for short & snappy no-nonsense melody centric indie music right now. We’re looking to bring it back to the mainstream”
