Published Jun 21, 2016Winnipeg-based indie rockers Attica Riots demonstrated their knack for penning earworms in their performances of "Misery" and "No Hands" for Exclaim! TV earlier this year. Now, as the release of their LP Love Sunshine & Hysteria this summer nears, we are revealing our final episode of the band's set.
"I'm Not the Only One" walks the line between alt-rock and sugary pop, balancing gracefully on groovy bass lines and sweet hooks that immediately draw you in. Just when the melody and pace get comfortable, a slow-down in the song's last quarter keeps the track mesmerizing. Lead singer Bobby Desjarlais speaks the final song lyrics in a sturdy voice, lamenting that "there's nowhere to hide" as the distortion fades away, leaving listeners holding their breath.
