Arkells surprised their fans last week with their latest single “Private School“, poking fun at privileged rich kids (with a help from a few friends in the music video). Along with the release, the Hamilton rockers have announced their fourth album Morning Report will be available August 5th. To add to the excitement, the Arkells have shared the album’s second single “A Little Rain (A Song For Pete)”.
If you’re familiar with the MLB and the Toronto Blue Jays in particular, then you might know Josh Donaldson is “The Bringer of Rain”. And if you’re familiar with the Arkells, you know they’re huge fans of their hometown team. So combining their love for the summer sport with their harmony-filled music, they turn the phrase into an uplifting track.
Sure to be a hit this upcoming summer, and well through the baseball season, “A Little Rain” is one of the Ariel’s best works yet, with their familiar indie pop energy, and tight-knit musicianship keeping them at the top of their genre.
