About the song – The Rules of Attraction
‘The Rules of Attraction’ is the guitar-driven and melodically supercharged debut single from Sydney-based rock band ‘I Know You Know’. The head bobbing rhythm combined with the instantly approachable melodies propels the song from start to finish like a rollercoaster complete with just the right number of jolts and turns.
The lyrics capture the mundaneness of the modern age and yearning for a more extraordinary life. The wry lines are delivered with raw honesty, while the chorus provides the sense of hope in realising our dreams, topped off with a cathartic outro.
When I wrote The Rules of Attraction, I wanted to capture that feeling of playing an old video game. I wanted to channel the zeitgeist of possibility, imagination and of the carefree times of childhood. When a game could captivate your imagination just by hearing a chiptune melody of the opening credit screens. When your imagination could transport you to another world on a wild adventure, and then make your heart melt when you finished it, only to realise you were in your living room the whole time.
