‘Ava’ is a sombre, piano-based cut, contrasting against the hyper-modern, upbeat pop of the album’s three previews so far, plastic-y first single ‘Hot Pink’, the sprawling ‘Falling Into Me’ and euphoric ‘It’s Not Just Me’.
The band’s Jenny Hollingworth explains that the track concerns “the realisation as you get older that some things are more complicated, and from the outside looking at a person you can’t always see how difficult some problems are to solve”.
The band are set to take ‘I’m All Ears’ to a handful of festivals - they just got announced for this year’s Reading & Leeds too - and will play a headline show at London’s Heaven in September.
