Earlier this year, we spoke with BellaMaine about their well-received debut EP, An Anxious Mind. We are happy to report that the band has recently released a follow up single to the aforementioned, and it’s an earworm. The track is called “The Only One You Care About,” and it combines modern synth with a cheerful melody reminiscent of the Cranberries and Sixpence None the Richer. The band brought back producer John Goodmanson (a favorite in the indie music circuit) for their latest track.

The vocals are divvied up between Nick and Julianne Thompson, and the grammatical possession in the lyrics bounces around cleverly. It’s upbeat, with an ever-so-slight exasperation in the delivery of “she’s leavin,’ she’s goin’ right now/she’s the only one you care about.” In a single line, BellaMaine captures the indescribable part of the human condition that tug o’ wars with telling someone how they truly feel. Impressive.

BellaMaine plans to release the rest of the songs on a full length the beginning of 2014. Hopefully they make their way to the East Coast soon.
