The AA-side of ‘Sludge’, both tracks will are getting a limited edition vinyl pressing, which will be released via new label Warp Records on 26th June.
“I’m glad that we’ve laid the groundwork for [the music] to be different,” keyboardist Arthur Leadbetter said in our Class of 2020 interview, hinting that the hopefully soon-to-be-announced debut album too could go in all manner of different directions. “It means we’re not afraid to do anything.”
