PREMIERE : Arkells :: 11:11 (video)

Excited to premiere the Arkell’s video for “11:11″. The Hamilton, Ontario natives are out with another 80′s pop inspired, indie-rock gem. Spoiler… it is about meeting a girl at a show. Great formula for a great track. “11:11″ is a follow up to the band’s previous release of the oh-so-catchy single “Come to Light“. Both songs are off the upcoming album High Noon out on August 5. Enjoy!
