Arkells have shared a live orchestral version of 'What Are You Holding On To?' Watch it first on Gigwise below.

The Canadian band released their third album, High Noon, in 2014 - and a few months ago it won the prestigious Juno Award for Rock Album Of The Year. As if that wasn't enough, they also snagged Group Of The Year at the same ceremony.

The orchestral rendition of 'What Are You Holding On To?', which was recorded in the band's hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, adds a cinematic quality to the song's already richly textured aesthetic.
