Thornhill share new song and video 'Arkangel'

Australia alternative metal unit Thornhill have released a new single titled "Arkangel." The track was mixed by George Lever (Sleep Token, Loathe) and its official Jacob Charlton-directed video is available below.


Thornhill guitarist Ethan McCann comments: "I started writing 'Arkangel' after surrounding myself with media from the late '90s and early '00s. I found the hit of nostalgia to be incredibly comforting while we were all locked away. I wanted this song to make you feel the way I felt watching these shows and movies from this period, so I treated it almost like a film score. I found the opening credits to the old Sarah Michelle Gellar Buffy series and basically wrote to that opening sequence. The sections of the song move quite rapidly, the root changes three or four times within the first minute which to me is what a band full of teenagers would be doing in their garage. They don't really know what they’re doing but it feels natural and is such a perfect representation of that era that they are living in."
