The Crystal Casino Band is a lively/high-energy Indie band releasing their fifth album featuring the new single “Not About You.” This sad boy summer anthem is about an in-between love. Singer and songwriter Pete Stevens sings about a person who is only interested in the relationship when convenient for them.
After a sleepless night, it is easy to wonder: “Do you miss me?” The single, “Not About You,” describes the notion of getting over love that doesn’t reciprocate the same effort and love in a relationship. The song’s theme and message are dedicated to a person we all know who thinks they have someone wrapped around their little finger. The grey area of a relationship is the essence of this track. “Not About You,” has become a warning for someone convinced they have a hold over another’s affection. But in reality, this song is about moving on from such a relationship.
Pete Steven’s sings this song with passion and rhythmic tempo:
“You think that every song is about you//Baby don’t you think that you’re wrong to//Assume in something that you just can’t prove//You leave me biting my cheek like a fool. The track leaves you with one message, if you thought this song was about you, it ain’t”
The DC band has a playful sound with heart-breaking lyrics. “Not About You” is a push-back track to those using others when convenient for them. Fans of The Killers, The Strokes, Hippo Campus, and the like are sure to love this band!
