Arrows In Action Remind Us That “Checking In” Is Important

Arrows In Action are back once again with another new single gearing up for the release of their debut album Built To Last out May 26th. “Checking In” comes as the sixth single from the album and is lyrically a new venture for the group. They sing “And I know that the phone works both ways / But maybe I’m too scared to confront how we all changed” before really pulling at the universal experience in the chorus with “Just checking in, hey, how you been? / It’s been too long, swear that I still exist / I missed your call, it’s no one’s fault / It was so much easier when we wеre kids”. Anyone that is old enough to have graduated high school or college, perhaps moved to a different state, or works a full-time job can relate to this sentiment all too well.

The trio also released a new music video to accompany the song. The visual follows the band swamped in mundane day-to-day tasks, and battling the pressure to find the time to communicate with their loved ones. It has a very uplifting ending, so make sure to watch the whole thing. You can check it out below!
