Published Oct 04, 2012Arkells' back-to-basics rock tunes have always had a slightly vintage quality, and that retro feel is emphasized by their latest music video for "On Paper," which comes from last year's Michigan Left. On a more modern note, the band covered the Frank Ocean song "Thinkin Bout You."
The clip for "On Paper" resembles an animated scrapbook, as cut-out images of the band members move in front of a plain, slightly crinkled backdrop, acting as a visual representation of the title. The song is a straightforward guitar anthem like we're used to hearing from Arkells, although there's a faint undercurrent of '80s-tinged dreaminess.
The clip premiered on PureVolume. Watch it below.
