Dara – Why Do I Only Think Of You?

An addictively sweet pop song

Dara - Why Do I Only Think Of You

Singer, songwriter and producer, Dara, could be pop’s latest up and coming prodigy. Inspired by the iconic music of The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie, she is exploring an old-school sound yet putting her own unique, modern stamp on it. Her latest single ‘Why Do I Only Think Of You?’ was released February 11th and is an exciting example of her potential to become a hugely successful artist.

With the catchiness of a Cure classic and such remarkable vocals (comparable to the incredible Lesley Gore), ‘Why Do I Only Think Of You?’ is an ironic tribute to the denial that comes with obsessive love. It’s groovy rhythm, bright guitar and memorable melody create an addictively sweet pop song that becomes a craving and can only be satisfied by hearing it again and again.

It’s groovy rhythm, bright guitar and memorable melody create an addictively sweet pop song that becomes a craving and can only be satisfied by hearing it again and again.

But, don’t let the retro-pop music fool you. With this track, Dara is addressing the sheer complexity of vacating a certain individual from the depths of one’s mind. Bursting out from light-hearted descriptions of her surroundings comes a chorus full of wistful longing; revealing a strong desire to finally be cured of a memory. Her repeated ‘Why Do I Only Think Of You?’s’ are so undeniably catchy, that by listening to this song you’ll be signing over your soul to Dara herself.

 ‘Why Do I Only Think Of You?’ is available on Soundcloud and Spotify and you can follow Dara’s socials here:

  • Great article and great song! The bright guitar tone really makes the song. You can hear the strokes influence there. Also reminds me of Two Door Cinema club. Keep up the good work!
