In January 2016 The Arcs returned with new music: the Hazy and psychedelic “Lake Superior”. The track was reportedly inspired by the new Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer, which tells the real-life story of Steven Avery, “a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime.”
Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in 2 days.
Proceeds to go to Innocence Project.
