Arkells have revealed their new single Relentless! The track is the first to be lifted from forthcoming album Rally Cry (October 19, Last Gang/Entertainment One).
Frontman Max Kerman explains of the track and new direction; “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. Lyrically, I was thinking about the idea of being a part of something bigger than myself. 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.”
