5 Things We Bet You Didn’t Know About Arkells

Posted on July 26, 2017

You know their name, but what do you REALLY know about the alternative rockers, Arkells? Here are five things we recently discovered, and that we wanted to share with you.

1. Arkells aren’t concerned about pleasing every person with their music

They make music that THEY love, and that THEY like – not music to appeal to anybody else. (Although frankly, we love every little bit of it)

2. They performed at Coachella’s 2017 music festival

SO COOL! Check out a clip of their dope performance:


3. Their song “Round and Round” was featured in the NHL 2017 EA Sports Game soundtrack

Every kid’s dream, right? Listen to the track below: 

4. They want to collab with Chance the Rapper & Kendrick Lamar

Would that be EPIC or what? 

5. Their band is named after a street 

In the Westdale neighborhood of Hamilton, ON, there is a street named “Arkell”, which ultimately inspired they guys’ band name.
