The Apples In Stereo’s “Told You Once” is NPR’s Song of the Day
Apples in Stereo, 7th IMA Winners & 9th IMA Judges, were featured last Friday as NPR’s Song of the Day.
(New York, NY): This past Friday, The Apples in stereo’s “Told You Once” was the National Public Radio’s Song of The Day!
NPR’s Christian Hoard explains: “The best song on The Apples in stereo’s newish album, Travellers in Space and Time, “Told You Once” is written from a point of view that recalls The Beatles‘ “You’re Gonna Lose That Girl.” The singer addresses an uncaring boyfriend, warning him that his bad behavior will cost him his lady — whom, unsurprisingly, the singer is happy to pick up off the pavement. The bright sing-along chorus (”I told you once, I told you twice / I’m gonna treat your baby nice”) comes off as almost comically polite.” Listen here.
In other news, the band will start their tour to the West Coast on October 22nd.
