American rockers, All Time Low reflect on the harsh truths of a relationship that turns sour with their new release, ‘Once In A Lifetime‘. Furthermore, they hit home with a lyrical storyline which many will find relatable, with them speaking candidly about breakups.

Once In A Lifetime‘ starts with a pop-rock soundscape with a vocal echoing around the speakers. Also, a palm-muted guitar rhythm leads the way forward. Post-overture, the drums hit with a sharp bite, and they give the mix new energy. Also, for anyone familiar with All Time Low’s backlog, it is evident from the start that they will pick up in pace and strength and do just that in the refrain.

Profound Message

Moreover, once the chorus hits, the instruments all blaze through with omnipotence, and neither member holds back! Frontman, Alex Gaskarth also cements his message even more profound. But, he does not express a cliche. Furthermore, he speaks about trying to forget all but he is struggling, and he knows that he cannot turn back. He has come to the end of his tether, and no matter what he does, he can not find his way back to the honeymoon period; the feeling is hard to remove, according to Alex.

Another thing that is arduous to shake off, though, is the here. It is unforgettable, and it gets stuck in mind leaving a deep sense of wanting to hit the replay button for another fix. It is a tactic which the band use regularly. But, it has never worked quite as well as it does here!
