Arkells team up with K.Flay on new single “You Can Get It”

Hamilton-based rock band Arkells returned last week with a brand new single “You Can Get It” featuring K.Flay. Announcing itself from the first note, the song asks a very simple question: “Tell me what you want?” The sentiment, much like its sound is both fearless and steadfast. They want you to think big.

Recorded with K.Flay in-person, in Los Angeles prior to 2020’s lockdown, “You Can Get It” has since taken on a new sense of relevance and urgency, after having been stuck inside for a year.

The Chicago-born K.Flay’s near-undefinable amalgamation of dark-electro soundscapes, art-pop sensibilities, spitfire rhymes, industrial rock backbone and versatile chameleon-like vocals has led the songwriter/artist/multi-instrumentalist to two GRAMMY nominations, tours alongside Grouplove, Imagine Dragons & Thirty Seconds To Mars, and festival spots at ACL Fest, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Treefort, and Riot Fest. About the song, K.Flay explains:

This song is about finding your momentum, the potential energy that’s inside of you. The moment when you scream to yourself “I DON’T GIVE A F*CK TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT! YOU CAN GET IT!” So often, the future doesn’t just feel unknowable – it feels impossible. We wanted this song to feel like possibility. Like the world is opening up. Like you are powerful.

The video is a fun play on the iconic game show Wheel Of Fortune with Max Kerman putting a spin on the role of iconic co-host Vanna White, while his bandmates play through a game of puzzles that spell out meaningful experiences we’ve longed for while in lockdown. The ‘wheel’ depicts what’s coming up next, whether that is a live performance break, experiences with loved ones, or announcing K.Flay’s entrance to the song.
