Election day...

Arcadia is an English group formed in 1985 and made up of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor, all 3 from the huge group Duran Duran. An ephemeral group whose origin of the name Arcadia actually comes from the name of Nicolas Poussin's painting ‘Et in Arcadia ego’.

He will produce only one album "So red the rose" still in 1985, album on which will intervene other sizes such as David Gilmour, Herbie Hancock, Sting, Grace Jones among others ...

Album which will be a real global hit this year and from which the mega hit “Election day” will be extracted. And to a lesser extent the singles "Goodbye is forever" still the same year and "The promise", as well as "The flame", which will be released a year later in 1986.

To discover or rediscover.

1985 ... the Arcadia parenthesis will only last for a moment for the 3 friends from Duran Duran, but what a parenthesis ! They sign here quite simply one of the biggest titles of the year 1985 and add a new star to an already more than consequent prize list. HU-GE !

1985 ... no title that will follow will be able to compete with the previous title but everything they will produce is of Premium quality anyway. Well on the other hand, when we see the pedigree of the lads, the opposite would have been very surprising !

1985 ... they deliver here a title full of finesse, an extremely rare fact concerning them, they who are rather accustomed to doing pure and hard Dance. And the least we can say is that they also excel in this area !

1985 ... a title which will go somewhat unnoticed but which is far from unworthy. Either way with them everything is good !

1985 ... decidedly, the Intimist inspires them to the highest point. Another facet of their talent that it would have been a shame to hide ...

1986 ... an adventure that will last only 2 short years and produce very few titles. But it is better quality than quantity as they say. And they prove it in a big way !

1986 ... between the incredible adventure Duran Duran, the Power Station parenthesis and this one, the 3 acolytes have a truly astounding prize list and above all an unlimited inspiration !

1986 ... not all the titles produced will end up as a global top hit but when we see the overall quality of the Arcadia adventure, we can only salute this performance worthy of the greatest !
