Kodiak Arcade, the musical alter ego of acclaimed composer Graeme Cornies, returns with a compelling new indie-electronica track titled ‘Another Summer’. With an impressive track record of over 15 years in the industry, Graeme Cornies has made significant contributions to over 40 TV shows and more than 1,000 television episodes. Alongside his writing partners at Voodoo Highway Music and Post, Cornies has established himself as one of the most prominent and heard composers globally, with his work has graced hit TV shows such as “Paw Patrol“, “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”, “Cat in the Hat“, and the “Total Drama” franchise, earning him numerous accolades, including awards from SOCAN and BMI.
‘Another Summer’, delves deep into the intricacies of long-term relationships, posing a question that often lingers in the minds of individuals: Can love flourish continually, even after the honeymoon phase fades? Poignantly exploring this topic, we’re faced with the reality of the hard work it takes to sustain a long-term relationship, and the fact that in life, people grow and evolve, and often, they grow apart. Instrumentally, the track is kaleidoscopic and ethereal, with glitchy rhythms and gated vocal chops, set atop melancholic piano chords and sparkling synth arpeggios, all interwoven into a superb sonic tapestry that seems to float and hover across the soundscape.
In Cornies‘ own words, he had this to say: “I don’t think this song makes a point so much as it asks the question above. I’m not sure this question has a right or wrong answer either. It sometimes strikes me how irrational it is for me to ask anyone to stay with me long-term if I can’t even guarantee who I will be in 10 years. And it’s the same in reverse. It takes some irrational faith to commit to another person to the point where you are building a life together, to say – no matter who we become as individuals – I will try to love that next version of you too.”
