In these often dark times of COVID-19 and parts of the country in lockdown, Melbourne singer-songwriter Aaron D’Arcy is having a Better Day with his new single charting at No. 3 this morning, August 28, on release.
Better Day is a rock-edged country song that has a positive outlook on sometimes challenging situations that has charted at No. 3 on the iTunes Country Songs Chart and No. 35 on the All Genres chart.
Written with Cam Muncey of iconic Australian rock band, Jet, Better Day is a fitting song for the current situation with Victorians forced to stay home, and the news full of doom and gloom.
“With a little bit of positivity, you can look at it and think it’s alright,” Aaron said.
“The positives I’ve tried to take away from COVID is that I get a break from things, I’m doing odd jobs around the house, taking a breath and spending more time with the family.”
When Aaron and Cam met to write together, Cam had a few lines of Better Day and it struck a chord with Aaron who suggested they finish it, which they did over a few sessions.
Writing with Cam was a highlight for Aaron who has been a longtime follower of Jet and loves their music.
“I liked Better Day so much that I asked if I could record it,” Aaron said.
“In every relationship, you have your ups and downs and good times and bad times, and this song is asking, ‘Will you be my better day?’
“It carries the messages that even though things can be doom and gloom, if you’ve got a positive outlook, they can change around.”
Aaron is currently in lockdown in Melbourne, but has shot a clip himself that will be released on August 31.
The single was made possible with the assistance of Creative Victoria.
