Get to know Arkells!

Canadian rock outfit Arkells have released their new single, the infectiously groovy ‘Relentless’ as the lead for new album ‘Rally Cry’ scheduled for release in October.  
The story of “Relentless” mixes both a new direction in songwriting for the band, plus a fond and heartfelt story, as told by frontman, Max Kerman:
 

“My dad showed me this South African artist named Chicco and this tune of his with this Afro-pop, keyboard driven, epic, cinematic groove.  We were so inspired by it, we ended up sampling a track for the first time and worked collectively to build a tune around it. Rock bands aren’t as known to dip their toe into the sample world, but in 2018 we’re game to throw all conventional rules out the window. It became the band’s favourite demo while recording but didn’t have a chorus yet - beyond the word ‘Relentless.’” 

After a meeting with Paul Langlois of The Tragically Hip, the rest of the chorus was written around the time old phrase ‘like a dog with a bone’.  “Then I was thinking about the idea of being a part of something bigger than myself,” furthered Kerman. “I was thinking about the band, and how we lean on each other, and how each guy brings something different but contributes to a larger idea. We find strength in each other. In being relentless.” 

The new album, of course, sees the band embarking on a tour to support the release, with one of the stops being our very own King Tut’s on the 25th November.  People keep on saying that rock is dead. It’s not. Someone had to say it.  It’s adapting to the modern times and this single is another great example of it.  Big, hooky and locked in with the pretty nifty sample means that it sounds fresh but also conventionally ‘rock’ enough to stop purists complaining, too much anyway.  Give it a go!
