Vocalist James Rushent comments on the record: “I think it’s about time we have a fu**ing mess. We were a year and a half ago in the studio, going ‘f*** them, f*** her, f*** him’. We want to perform music that, if we heard it, we’d go ‘oh, who’s that?’ rather than ‘here’s another fucking 60s soul artist’.

“It was stressful, panicky and hard work. It’s the nature of how we work; it’s like trying to put a jigsaw together where you don’t know what the picture is at the end. I feel like we’ve come across the finish line with our pants hanging halfway down our legs.”

“This is our break-out album,” continues synth-player Dan Coop. “It has got balls-out angry stuff and serene melancholic, quite depressing stuff as well. We’d rather show all our hands like that rather than write a whole album that sounds the same.”
