Arkells, Canada’s most in-demand live act, have made their return with new single Years In The Making and its accompanying video. This is their first piece of new music since 2018’s JUNO-Award winning and critically lauded, Rally Cry.
The new single is a fun and energetic tune that is heavy on the horns giving it a twist on your average pop song. And can we talk about that soaring chorus? You will be singing loudly along with it after you hear it the first time. This infectious song is just made for car dancing ( we can’t be the only ones who dance in our car….are we? )
The accompanying video is as vibrant as the song and might even give you ideas on your dance moves for that next stoplight.
Here is what frontman Max Kerman had to say about the new song:
You never know when the universe will deliver a tune from the song gods, but “Years In The Making” arrived just when we needed it. It leans on a question we keep coming back to: How do we conceive of everything we’ve been through, and shape it to offer some love and hope? “Years In The Making” is meant to encourage us to find ways to embrace the bumps in the road, because all of our challenges are ultimately there to help us work towards the dream – whatever that may be. Most importantly, the song is meant to viscerally offer our bodies all the moves to play it live. Thank you to all of our inspirations that drive us forward. The reward is this A+ banger.
