THE DAILY KRAPHT- BOBBY SHOEBOTHAM – “I’M ON YOUR SIDE”
“I’m On Your Side” is a quirky, feel good track from Bobby Shoebotham. Bobby has always created & performed punk rock tunes, but his new track, “I’m On Your Side”, incorporates a lot of indie and folk elements that make for fun, easy listening. Bobby describes this track as follows:
“The song’s pretty much about exactly what it says on the tin, that age old classic of falling for someone you shouldn’t do. I wanted to convey how much that situation sucks, but I didn’t really want it to be a major bummer like some crappy Dashboard Confessional song. Apparently it’s not cool to write a sad song with a happy tune, but in this respect, and with a lot of my other songs, I feel like you might as well take something good out of the bad and try to turn it into a sugary pop banger. It also helps you get over the whole thing, as now whenever I play it I pretty much just get feelings of joy from it. To me it’s just such an uplifting song and that’s how I want everyone to feel when they hear it.”
His incredible accent comes through strong during his impressionable lyrics and delicate chords. “When you grow up, what do you want to be? And have you realized that you are and that you’re never going to be. Well I see, because that is me” is one line from this indulgent track. This song is easily just as contagious as Bobby’s smile and upbeat personality.
