Now they’re ramping up the anticipation just that little bit
more by unveiling a brand new track, ‘It’s Only Love’. Speaking of the track,
frontman Jamie Hall said: “’It’s Only Love’ is a song about being numb, looking
inside yourself and examining your emotions with a machine-like pragmatism,
He continued: “We wanted to layer big chords played on Mellotrons and pad synths to give the song this huge expansive vibe. We’d dipped our toes into synth territory on [debut album] Abstract Figures In The Dark which was always very low-key, but it felt right to use those instruments unabashedly to create the atmosphere and dynamic the song needed. More often we’ll find ourselves reaching further for new textures to serve songs as we develop”.
Recently, the band revealed details of a new UK tour taking place in October, where they’ll be heading to Southampton, Exeter, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Manchester and Norwich. Now, they’ve also just announced a date at London’s Scala, which will take place in January next year! Tickets are on sale now.
