The track was premiered just now on Mistajam’s Radio 1 show, who’s still sitting in for Annie Mac on weeknights. Speaking of the track in a press release, the band say: “We started writing ‘In Cold Blood’ in our Leeds days and finished it last year in London. The brass was recorded at Abbey Road; the keyboards were done on a Casiotone that cost £1.05 on eBay; and no-one is quite sure where the key change came from.”
The band are set to play a whole host of festivals across the summer, alongside a special show at London’s O2 Arena on 16th June, celebrating ten years of the venue.
