Today, Arkells unveil new song and video “A Little More” and add the track to Campfire Chords, a stripped back collection of their most beloved songs. Written with a nod to the band’s piano player Anthony Carone, “A Little More” is an uplifting song about love and sacrifice that stems from when Carone’s musical father sold a bunch of his own gear in order to buy an upright piano for his young son to learn to play.
Watch the official video that was once again self-shot by band frontman Max Kerman in one take on an iPhone here:
If this song was a movie, there’d be a disclaimer at the beginning that reads “The following is based on a true story.” Arkells latest A Little More comes as a welcomed *new* edition to their fan-favourite, Campfire Chords LP. The tune was written with a nod to their piano man Tony – an undisputed wizard on the keys. He’s been playing since he was a small child and they have adorable photos of a 6-year-old Tony to prove it. In Tony’s infancy, his musician-father sold a bunch of his own gear in order to buy an upright piano for his young son to learn to play. A fam-favourite, this story of love, dedication and sacrifice was befitting of a song itself.
Also today, Arkells launch the Campfire Chords guitar chord book as a companion piece to the Campfire Chords music. Expanding beyond the Campfire Chords track listing, the 33-song book captures songs across Arkells’ entire catalogue.
