New video released by Arkells

Today, Hamilton based rockers, Arkells released a new video, for their second official single off of their fourth album, Morning Report. I am quite happy to say that the second single is none other than “My Heart’s Always Yours”, which is one of my favourites from their newest release. The video features the band being observed in a collection of unique art installations. When asked about the concept of the video, lead vocalist, Max Kerman says:

“Making a video for a romantic song is hard. If you’re not careful it’ll quickly turn in to the trailer for A Walk To Remember. We loved (director) Ally’s previous work, and when she pitched a treatment that was more abstract and less on the nose, we were immediately drawn to the idea. There’s a visceral experience about being in an art gallery that I really enjoy. A lot of great art doesn’t serve it right up to you – you have to patiently take it in and then unpack your feelings. That’s what the video offers – it gives me the feels without any trite nods to romantic nostalgia.”

The band are taking off on a series of tour dates, although for us Canadians, there are only two Toronto shows, and they are both currently sold out. But in case you want me to take a road trip to see this insanely awesome band, here are the upcoming dates throughout US and UK!
