Ever wondered what your favourite artists think is the best song they’ve written? How about the meaning behind it? Well don’t fret because we at AltCorner have got you covered! Here Arkells frontman Max Kernan takes us behind the scenes on his favourite song!
Whatis your favourite song you’ve written?
Lately, I’m particularly happy with our new song Relentless.
What inspired the song?
My dad showed me a song by a South African artist named Chicco. I was blown away by the tune, and we used it as a centre piece of Relentless. It’s our first time using a sample from another artist. The song is about finding strength in the people around you. I’m very aware of my own personal limitations, so I really enjoy being apart of something bigger than myself. I take joy in the idea that everyone brings something different and unique to the party.
What is it about the track that makes it so special to you?
The keyboard part that we sampled is something we wouldn’t have been able to dream up ourselves, so to hear this foreign sounding idea combined with our own band’s sensibilities, was pretty exciting to play back in the studio.
