“Gummy came to life literally by me setting out one day to make the most ridiculous song I could write,” Will says. “Day 1 it was just a synth bass line, the beat and the opening gummy chant. I didn’t think I would use it for anything but I kept coming back, plus all my friends were bopping to it. As I built it up it transformed into this very earnest dreamy love letter.
“Transforming the track into a feature version was really special. Tessa and I have been fans of each other’s music for years. I feel like she approaches her music with the same fearless fun energy I try to create, whilst still having lyrics full of heart and meaning. When I heard her first pass on GUMMY I instantly knew it would slap. We’re currently on tour together across North America which has been an awesome experience so far.”
