Release Date: 31st March 2017
New York trio The Running Lights open this single up with a bassline, a clicked beat and the breathless vocal “I just can’t the pain of being lead on and let down by somebody who I’m nothing to”. This is heartbreak from the start and ‘Once Upon a Time’ is a cautionary tale of letting your heart rule your head but also comes as slightly stalky in some of the lyrics. Whatever your take on the sentiment, however, the music should suit fans of more recent Maroon 5 or Coldplay’s work with Chainsmokers with its indie-pop vibe and clean, almost sparse musicianship. As cool and sophisticated as you’d expect from a bunch of New Yorkers.
