Speaking to us back in August about the record, they said: “In Britain you’ve had Brexit and in America we’ve had Trump, and we wanted this album to speak to those anxieties and how disconnected some people feel from reality right now.
“If you pay close attention to the lyrics then this record might take you to a dark place, but that’s what we wanted. We couldn’t just make the same album again. We wanted to show people that when they are in that dark place, in a relationship or whatever, they’re not alone. This might not be the most immediately rewarding record, but it grows on you and as you go through some shit in your life, it will be there waiting for you at the end of the day.”

The biggest and best tracks of the week, rounded up and reviewed.
They’ll be joined by Glass Animals, Caribou, Whitney and more.
Highlights also include girl in red, CHAI and Mac DeMarco.
Returning with new LP ‘Forever Turned Around’, we find the duo in a more reflective, melancholy state of mind - but still finding beauty in what might seem bleak.
