The idea for Arlie took shape slowly in the mind of Nashville college student Nathaniel Banks, whose music - a cosmically nostalgic combination of dormroom psychedelia and golden-era pop - began to draw the attention of peers and the wider Music City community in 2016. But to bring his meticulously-crafted compositions to the stage, Banks realized he would need to enlist a collective of talented players from local college music programs - and so Arlie became a band with the addition of drummer Adam Lochemes, bassist Jason Antwi, guitarist Carson Lystad, and multi-instrumentalist Tyler Waters. Over the course of the following year, the band released two singles, "Big Fat Mouth" and "Didya Think," which together have been streamed close to 3 million times. Arlie's vibrant live set has grown out of raucous Nashville house parties to a sold out show at Nashville's The End in late 2017, and has garnered the band an exciting slate of shows at SXSW 2018, upcoming support dates with Rostam (Vampire Weekend), and summer appearances at Bonnaroo, Forecastle, and Sloss Festivals. Come early summer, Arlie plan to release their debut EP, pack up their diplomas and hit the road with new music. Their newest release, "blackboard.edu", is the first collaborative effort between Banks and the other members of Arlie, a track that combines Banks' honed production skills with the dynamic energy of the band at full force.
