‘One Thing One Time’ is the latest single from Perth based, power pop trio, Rinehearts.

The Inspiration for ‘One Thing One Time’ has come from the uncertain times we're living in and the pressures of everyday life that we all feel from time to time. The song, in some ways, is a reflection of how to slow down, deal with things as they come and grasp onto the concept that "time is temporary when you get it".

It's the first taste of what's to come since their 2019 Debut album Can't Do Nothing, and shows a real leap in songwriting and direction for the band.

The group has been powering out the pop since forming in 2016, and their pedigree comprises two notable Perth bands. Ben Ward (guitar and vocal) and Mitch Long (bass) were formerly members of high-energy rock’n’rollers Screwtop Detonators, who rode the rock wave in the mid-00s to international semi-prominence, recorded with legendary producer Charles Fisher (Radio Birdman, Hoodoo Gurus) at Trafalgar Studios in Sydney, won the attention of Marky Ramone and Deniz Tek, and were even the subject of an award-winning feature documentary, filmed over a ten-year period, called Meal Tickets.

Around the same time, drummer Ross Di Blasio was a member of Snowman, who released three acclaimed albums, toured with the likes of the Drones and Wolfmother, and eventually relocated to London before disbanding in 2011.

Rinehearts came together in 2016, with the purpose of exploring the members’ mutual love of power pop-styled music. They are frequently compared to the likes of The Replacements and Reigning Sound; to which you might wanna add the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Shoes and some pure power pop projects – like the DM3 or the Someloves - from hometown hero Dom Mariani. Or Aussie '80s & '90s jangle-pop acts like the Ups & Downs, the Spliffs, the Crystal Set, the Falling Joys and the Clouds. Also, Even, which is cool because their label, Cheersquad, is run by Even bass player Wally Kempton, who loves these guys.

Ben, Mitch and Ross are long-time friends, and you can hear that in the music. There is a sweet friendliness to their sound, and a sense of easy fun. The group’s tunes received international attention from the get-go when U.K label No Front Teeth Records released their first record, the 7” EP ‘Try Your Luck,’ within months of the band forming. The living room-recorded debut album Can’t Do Nothing followed on Cheersquad in 2019, and the band added an east coast contingent to its ever-expanding but west-centered fan base.

New single “One Thing One Time” was recorded with long-time friend and engineer Al Smith at Musgrove Studios – a real studio for a change. They put the finishing touches on the song at their own, recently self-built studio Pink House Studios, where they are currently bunkered down recording album number 2, with production help from Dom Mariani.


I tried being patient
It just took too long
I tried conversation
It just came out wrong
I need peace of mind
Falling behind
Wrapped up in something
I can’t get behind
But it’s only gunna happen
If you look into your mind
It’s only what you're wanting
That you know you cannot find
One thing one time
One thing one time
Science and movement
Is how we’re designed
I’m wrapped up in something
I can’t get behind
But it’s only gunna happen
If you look into your mind
It’s only what you're wanting that you know you cannot find
One thing one time
One thing one time
Is time
Is temporary when you get it
One thing one time
One thing one time
