Get Around To It

Album: Yet to be Titled (2014)

  • The lead single from One Night Only's third album, the opening riff was written while some of the band were messing around in their old rehearsal space. Frontman George Craig recalled to MTV UK: "At the time I remember us being quite excited by it, but it really started to take hold when we moved the main riff from keys to guitar, and kept a piano maintaining the basic rhythm."

    "The lyrics came a little while later and are pretty self explanatory," he added, "it's the familiar tale of a relationship gone bad and all the petulant nonsense that goes with it."
