Afloat release new single 'But I'm Not'

From the first notes, Afloat’s new single But I’m Not harkens back to early 2000s pop punk – the lead guitar riff sounds like something straight out of an Alkaline Trio song. Where you’d expect Matt Skiba’s voice to come in though, instead there is an almost country sounding riff, a main stay of the song, leading in frontperson Gabby Relos’s vocals. Her highly pitched voice threads through with the titular but I’m not in a punchy cadence before running into the chorus marked by consistent repetitions of the lyrics I’m gonna make you, which you’ll find yourself singing along to by the end of the song. Overall, But I’m Not is a very solid track and I’m super excited to hear what comes next.
