Song 96: Arkells – People’s Champ

Artist: Arkells

Song: People’s Champ

Another great surprise this year! Arkells have been a band I’ve enjoyed for years now and it’s no surprise that this brand new track is a great one. Having seen them live many times now they always put on a great show. The last few times have been extra fun since they’ve either given me a shout out or acknowledged me in some fun way. My most recent memory was seeing them this past summer in Victoria before leaving for the bike trip. They did a full set on the main stage and a little pop up set on a side stage which was really fun. Beyond being talented musicians, the whole band is filled with super nice down to earth people. When they heard about my bike trip they tweeted about it all of their followers and also made a generous donation of $500. Anyways, that has nothing to do with the song, haha. Check it out and get excited about¬†“The Rally” this summer at Tim Horton’s Field!


365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
