Riff: Avicii – “I Could Be The One”

Feb 28, 2013

Do you think about me when the crowd is gone?/It used to be so easy, you and me

from I Could Be The One lyrics by Avicii

This UK chart-topper might not be as inspired as its accompanying ‘middle-aged woman’s Spring Break’ promo, but it’s a welcome step in the right direction for the EDM scene as Swede Noonie Bao quietly offers the chance of escapism to an estranged love over an occasionally tender synth-pop backdrop.
