Arkells: Continue to push their sound to new heights…..

Arkells _ Blink Once

The track One Thing I Know,

Lyrics:

Why did you lose your accent?

It comes out when you’re with your old friends

They said you better mask it

You don’t want the big city laughing

One thing that I know

You gotta let your colours show

There’s no use in denying

I’m done living a lie

So sick and tired of hiding

Secrets living in my soul

There’s no use re-designing

What I got deep down inside

Got free just by surrendering

To the one thing I know

So many nights I was acting

Just to keep people from asking

You said “baby let’s go cruising”

But we never left the back seat

One thing that I know

You gotta let your colours show

There’s no use in denying

I’m done living a lie

So sick and tired of hiding

Secrets living in my soul

There’s no use re-designing

What I got deep down inside

Got free just by surrendering

To the one thing I know

I’m not gonna mind my manners

I know that I can’t go backwards

You say things got out of hand

I said you don’t understand us

The track You Can`t Get It,

Lyrics:

Tell me what you want and I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do

I’m not giving up come on we got nothing left to lose

I’ve been here from the start you know I’m not going anywhere

I don’t give a f**k tell me what you want – you can get it

Tied up

Bad vibes, bad luck, been swinging like a boomerang

Dried up

All talk, no bite, now we’re coming like a hurricane

Pull the curtain back

Everybody wants to get some

A surprise attack

You and me together coming at you like a hurricane

Tell me what you want right now

Let everybody talk right now

Tell me what you want right now

You can get it

Tell me what you want and I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do

I’m not giving up come on we got nothing left to lose

I’ve been here from the start you know I’m not going anywhere

I don’t give a f**k tell me what you want – you can get it

Hold up

Coming out of me, lightning bolt electricity

Blow up

Tearing at the seams yeah I see it unraveling

Pulling back the curtain got the sun in my eyes

Everybody they been hurting but they push it aside

Every person is a person with a different disguise

Feels like I’m on a desert island and it’s lord of the flies 

Watch out for your neck

Wrecking ball is swinging heavy 

This adrenaline

It’s coming outta me, lightning bolt electricity 

Tell me what you want right now

Let everybody talk right now

Tell me what you want right now

You can get it

Canadian recording artists, Arkells today announce their sixth studio album, Blink Once, to be released on September 30, 2021 via Universal Music Canada/Virgin Label and Artist Services, the country’s leading music company. This new collection of songs prove Arkells continue to push their sound to new heights, with the anthemic Blink Once promising to live up to their famous live show.

«Now more than ever, it seems our lives can change in the blink of an eye», says front man Max Kerman. «We began working on this album before the world changed and this title felt right given where we’ve collectively landed. Everyday you wake up and you think you know a lot of stuff, then it turns out – you don’t».

The bi-coastal project, recorded in LA and completed in Toronto, includes current hit single, You Can Get It featuring K.Flay, which has charted in the #1 spot at Canadian Alternative Radio for 4 weeks and is their fifth #1 at the format. You Can Get It  was prominently featured in the E3 launch of the Forza Horizon 5 video game trailer this summer.

Blink Once also includes #1 track Years In The Making, as well as All Roads, which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy.

The announcement comes alongside the release of the live stand-out, One Thing I Know, a rowdy, feel-good sing-a-along that is bursting at the seams. The music video was filmed after-hours at No FrillsbDufferin Mall location in downtown Toronto, and finds the band mischievously performing the track at full throttle. «This song is about not being ashamed of who you are and where you come from» notes Kerman. «The best version of yourself lets your colors show – to feel free, weird and unburdened by all the things out of our control».

Regularly credited as one of the hardest working bands (period), Arkells have stayed ever-present, even in a global pandemic. Releasing three #1 singles and picking up the 2021 JUNO Award for Group of The Year, Arkells also filled their time off the road by releasing their first acoustic-leaning project, Campfire Chords – a deluxe LP & play-at-home guitar chord book inspired by their most beloved hits, and the band’s live streamed interactive music lessons that moved fans to learn new skills while «flattening the curve» from home.

Hailed by Canada’s The Globe and Mail as «he right kind of band for this decade», Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present – building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and new music at every turn. The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells hometown concert that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, and is slated to return in 2022. On the heels of three #1 singles, Arkells continue to unleash new music and tour dates as the band and their fans return to live in-person festivities. Their hotly anticipated new album Blink Once releases globally September 30, 2021.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5513 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
