Arkells Leave Their Troubles Behind in ‘Only For A Moment’
Ontario-based indie alt-rockers Arkells are back with another track, this time we are sharing their newest – ‘Only For A Moment,’ which will appear on their newest CD, Rally Cry, due out on October 19th.
Max Kerman explains the origins of the new single ‘Only For A Moment’: “There’s a line in our tune Come To Light, ‘The underpass would keep us from harm.’ It’s that moment when you’re driving through a rainstorm, and you have a second of respite from the chaos outside. I find myself writing and thinking about those moments of calm, and how important they can be. Only For A Moment is an extension of that idea. My friend’s mom was struggling with some oppressive mental health issues. It was tough for everyone in her family. But there was a moment we were out one night, where my friend seemed to leave the trouble behind – just for an hour – and could just enjoy her life. The stress on her face seemed to disappear. And I was happy she could have that.”
‘Only For A Moment’ is another A+, solid track from this powerhouse band, and if you have not been turned on to them yet, it’s time you jump on board.
