Conor Oberst Drops Double A-Side Single No One Changes/The Rockaways

Wednesday, 07 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Conor Oberst has dropped a double a-side single.

No One Changes and The Rockaways have been posted to the singer-songwriter's Bandcamp page, where you can also pick up the 7". The former features the Bright Eyes mastermind accompanying himself on piano, while the latter has Nathaniel Walcott on the keyboard and Oberst on guitar.

The songs follows LAX, which came out in late October. The track featured backing vocals from Phoebe Bridgers and was produced by Simone Felice (of the Felice Brothers) as part of Amazon Music's Produced By series. Oberst's last album, meanwhile, was 2017's 'Salutations', a companion piece to his 2016 LP ‘Ruminations’.

Both new tracks find Oberst in a reflective mood, and on No One Changes his vocal delivery is exasperated, echoing the frustration hinted at in its title. “Nobody’s gonna change, nobody ever does. Nobody’s gonna change, nobody’s changing for you," he sings. "And I’m never going to do what you want me to.” The Rockaways, meanwhile, utilises a softer approach to get nostalgic.

Conor Oberst - Salutations (Album Review)
Tue 21 Mar 2017
The band name Bright Eyes inspired immediate mistrust. It conveyed shoe-gazing egotism and a kind of phoney introversion peddled by spoiled suburbanites on college campuses. Maybe that's why Conor Oberst retired the moniker in 2011 and decided to double down on solo albums. ‘Salutations’ is his third since the band split, and his eighth in total.

Tue 16 Oct 2018
Primal Scream continue to divide opinion. As a ‘90s indie band they are a bit of an also-ran: a group who produced some excellent music while being outshone by bands who had more consistency across membership and sound like Blur, Oasis and Pulp.
Twenty One Pilots - Trench (Album Review)

In 2015, Twenty One Pilots got their big break. The Ohioans’ fourth album, ‘Blurryface’, summited the US chart and sent two singles into similarly rarefied air. The following year another song, Heathens, ushered in the soundtrack to the hit film, Suicide Squad. The resulting period has seen the band ascend to arena-filling stardom and paved the way for ‘Trench’, a record that combines their distinctive blend of elaborate production with re-upped nu-metal.
