Endearingly tipping its hat to the tug-of-war game that love can sometimes be, ‘I Can’t Stand It’ is something of an inverted love song and dedicated (with tongue-firmly-in-cheek) to the long-suffering love interests of the Only Sun boys.
Speaking about the new single, Only Sun say:
“I know I drive you crazy. But I love you really. Winding people up is the thing we do best and it is the ones we love that we test the most. Groveling apologies is our next best skill and the two complement each other wonderfully. The thing is, it’s way too peaceful all the time – and that’s just a little bit boring, isn’t it?
Strewn with pin-balling dual guitars and elasticated rhythms reminiscent of Two Door Cinema Club or Circa Waves, and matched with an infectious chorus guaranteed to be your earworm for the day, ‘’I Can’t Stand It’ is another premium addition to the Only Sun canon. The track follows the band’s summer smash ‘It’ll Be Alright’ released on the Close-Up label earlier this year.
The High Wycombe five-piece are looking forward to getting their chops around a string of shows across the UK throughout October and November. Kicking-off with a final Festival show of the year at Middlesbrough’s Twistarella Festival on 12th October, the band will then chart their way around 7 UK shows that stand as some of their biggest venues to date.
