ARKELLS - SINGLE REVIEW

Arkells - 11:11 (Heavy Plaid/Universal Music Canada) 
Arkells - 11:11

Release Date: 21st July 2014

I have to admit that on my first experience of this single I didn't really take in much of the music as the video is incredibly compelling which is odd because literally nothing of note happens. On second listen I realised that '11:11' is actually a slick, beautifully crafted and fun indie-pop single that could you easily imagine wafting out from the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury to a crowd of appreciative and loved up indie fans. The slick guitars and perky drums are woven together by layers of synths and a Brandon Flowers style clean vocal delivery that will have teenage girls falling in love by the first chorus. And maybe some boys as well...
