In the vast landscape of music, where genres often intertwine, Graeme Cornies, under the moniker Kodiak Arcade, has once again delivered a musical journey that transcends boundaries. His latest release, “Another Summer”, beckons listeners to delve into the complexities of human connection and the everlasting resonance of love.The track, accompanied by a beautiful music video, invites us to contemplate the evolution of long-term relationships. Cornies skillfully raises questions about the feasibility of sustaining love through life’s unpredictable twists and turns.
Talking about the track, the artist shares: “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.“
Overall, “Another Summer” asks a question that people often ask themselves: Once the infatuation of a new relationship fades and the spell of newness has worn off, can the relationship bloom again and again over time? Should we put in the long-term effort that commitment takes, or was our short time in the sun all that was meant to be?
Kodiak Arcade leaves it to us to answer these questions and reflect on our own relationships.
