Charlottetown based rockers Arsenal Mills recently dropped “Cry No More,” a new single from their forthcoming EP, Lovesick & Broke.
The band’s line up consists of Brad Milligan (vocals, guitar), Griffen Arsenault (lead guitar), Josh MacNeil (drums), and André Uyterlinde (bass, keyboard, synth).
Milligan says “Cry No More” first came together very spontaneously and naturally. “Griff brought this big, sing-along chorus to me that he’d been working on,” he recalls. “From there, and in only a short time, we had all the music and lyrics written out.”
The song has a driving beat reminiscent of classic 80s New Wave. “I remember everyone in the studio at the time was dancing along to the song while we were recording,” Arsenault recalls. “We figured that was a good indication of how fun this song is!”
“As far as drums and percussion go, this was the first time we decided to mix live and sample drums in a song,” MacNeil explains. “I love how punchy and quick it is; it doesn’t mess around, just straight to the point.”
“This song has been in my head literally since the day I first heard it,” Uyterlinde adds.
“Cry No More” is available on digital platforms.
