Sharing new track ‘Young Buck’, the lead single from new LP ‘Shadow Offering’, singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston says, “We wrote this song to capture the nervous anticipation of desire, the delicate chase of seduction, the highs and lows of obsession, and the humour in between. To want to possess someone, make them desire you, fall for you, only to learn that to lust is not to love.”
Lifted from their upcoming record, which is set to land on 24th April, Raphaelle says the album has “more hopefulness than anything else I’ve written. I think the songs are more human, more tangible, more honest.”

It’s the third preview of debut album ‘Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile’, due this month.
It comes alongside the news that they’ve signed to Dead Oceans.
The trio’s last album came in 2017 with ‘After Laughter’.
The “dance banger” track, which appears on imminent new album ‘Hold The Girl’, is described as a “turning point” in the record.
