Mashing together the sounds of alt-rock, indie and reggae, Attonbitus are an Adelaide-based three-piece doing some big things in their home city. Their 2017 single Cognition got a fair bit of love here and there, however, now they're setting their eyes on the larger national circuit with the release of their forthcoming debut album David Street, out July 27. Next Time Around is the third taste of said album and it's a really light and breezy take on their sound, combining a whistling melody with thick, hazy vocals and this contrasting, stripped-back instrumental which suits the single and its themes perfectly. "The song’s meaning communicates the familiar feeling of frustration when attempting to get an honest word from someone who has abruptly turned cold on you," says lead singer Michael Brigante on the track. "Next Time Around expresses the realisation that the silent treatment is not worth anybody's time, and that it's better to not waste your energy trying to get an answer out of someone who is not forthcoming."
The single has now been joined by a bright and joyful video clip, which according to Brigante, is all about self-expression and expressing yourself. "The idea of this video clip is simply promoting expression; letting yourself be silly dancing with no care in the world," he says on the video clip, filmed in Adelaide's Rundle Mall. "With regard to the song its asking people not to be cold in public; express yourself anywhere at any time and if the opportunity arises don’t be afraid to dance." Check out the clip below, and stay tuned for their debut album when it arrives at the end of this month.
