Alt/rock quartet Sun Arcana have just released their brand new single What If You Can’t Accept Me?, via Easy Life Records. The raw and punchy track displays frontman Tom Harper-Ward’s gritty and passionate vocals, and can be streamed hereTom explains, What if you can’t accept me is about being in a relationship, not knowing whether you should adapt the way you are for a particular person or whether it’s best to move on. Doing all you can to impress someone but there’s only so much you can do for someone’s approval, feeling like now there’s no hope of flourishing.” They have also revealed the official music video, which sees the narrative follow on from their debut single’s video for Hard To Be Around. Tom has said, “So this next video is about dealing with the break up, whereas Hard To Be Around was me thinking everything is okay. It portrays the meaning behind the song of trying to get someone’s approval but there is only so much you can do.” Watch the video here.

The four-piece also recently announced the release of their EP, Just Another Dream AwayThe 5-track EP will arrive on 15th November, via Easy Life Records. Having holed themselves up in their native Essex, they wrote the tracks together and also worked alongside Chris Coulter (Jamie Lenman, Arcane Roots), Gustav Wood and John Taylor (of Young Guns) and Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters). The result is a very honest and vulnerable but powerful body of work, sure to see the band continue on a very promising and exciting journey. Last month saw the release of first single to be taken from the EP, Hard To Be Around which received its first spin on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Future Sounds Show last week, as one of her ‘New Name’ features. Hard To Be Around also got a spin on Alex Baker’s ‘Fresh Blood’ show on Kerrang! radio on Wednesday.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Sun Arcana are gearing up to headline The Grace (formerly Thousand Island) in Islington, London on 26th November. Last year saw the band cut their teeth on the live circuit, where they played festivals such as Reading & Leeds, 2000 Trees and The Great Escape to name a few, and supported the likes of The Xcerts, The Maine and more. Tickets for the band’s headline show at The Grace are on sale now, here.
