Archaics are a five-piece psychedelic art-rock band from Edmonton, AB. Their experimental tastes create an orchestrated, cavorting atmosphere that accompanies one through thoughts of kaleidoscopic hysteria, dipping through the fervour of primal blues, the free roaming spirit of old-time jazz, and the dirty mystique of psychedelic garage rock. In 2016 they released their second full-length album, Soft Focus, with Sweety Pie Records, with ex-pat Renny Wilson at the helm. The past three years have consisted of notable presence and recognition within the Canadian arts community with opening slots for bands such as The Dandy Warhols, SUUNS, Dead Meadow, Destruction Unit, and L.A. Witch. Actively introducing their caravanning circus to curious ears, the band has completed two tours across Canada and performed at festivals including Big Winter Classic, Vancouver Psych Fest, and Golden West Music Fest, and UP+DT.
