Listen: Arkells Cover Tobias Jesso Jr.’s “Can’t Stop Thinking About You”

Arkells cover Tobias and things get swoony

Our Hamilitonian homies, Arkells are no strangers to taking other peoples material and making it their own. In the past they’ve covered Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey and a ton of motown acts but now it’s Canadian Tobias Jesso Jr.’s turn to get the Arkellian treatment.

Frontman Max Kerman had this to say: “When I heard the Tobias record, I immediately got jealous. The chord-melodies and string arrangement are right up my alley. He’s channelling all the 70’s piano-balladeers that I love so much. I think there is a real kinship in our songwriting, and dude’s got nicer curls than me too. Might be a long lost cousin.”
