Kodiak Arcade is an ongoing art project spearheaded by Graeme Cornies, an award-winning composer best known for his film and television work with Voodoo Highway Music and Post. A hi-fi homage to the lo-fi sounds of the past, Kodiak Arcade is where the humanity of the organic performances are intertwined with sounds that can only be created by modern tech.
“Something Real” is Cornies’ first collaboration as a trio with Brian Pickett (Strumbellas, Simon and the Island, Warped 45s) and Joshua Van Tassel (Great Lake Swimmers, Sarah Slean, KIRTY). A mood-propelling song about the moments where we stop ruminating on the past or planning for the future in favour of being present. It’s also about the futility of trying to have it all.
