Feature: Loser – Only One
Alt-rock powerhouse LOSER welcome 2023, continuing the mapping of their new EP with the release of third single ‘Only One’ from their innovative ‘Netflix-style’ EP ‘Stadium Dreams On A Bedroom Budget’. The only ballad from the EP, they sacrifice none of the power or refinement that has established LOSER as one of Australia’s premier rock outfits.
‘Only One’ is a gentle moment of reprieve on the power-forward 6-track EP. It spotlights vocalist Tim Maxwell unfurling his heart in vulnerability reminiscing on the power of loyalty and love.
“The ballad of the EP, this song took ages to get right. We recorded it multiple times and I doubted it for a while but eventually we got the right sound. Only One is one of the first love songs I have written, no matter how many times you fuck up in life there will always be someone by your side to support you and give you hope.” – Tim Maxwell, LOSER
To accompany the single, LOSER released a live clip,
“We wanted all the music videos for the release to be live performances.
This was to create a different reason to watch the video, because you are getting an actual live take audio performance and not the audio from the EP.
We also wanted to show people that we can actually play our own instruments.
It’s funny that in 2023 that has become a point of difference, but we don’t wanna hide behind technology, because when it comes to performing we’re the real deal.”
‘Only One’, was recorded at Restless Noise Studios, the band’s own home studio. The track was produced by band members Craig Selak and Tim Maxwell, the latter of whom also mixed. To close out the team, the track was then mastered by George Georgiadis at Little Wing Sound (The VANNS, Gang Of Youths).
