The four-piece are heralded as one of the most exciting breakthrough bands in the UK, their five singles so far – ‘Vitamin C’, ‘Runaway’, ‘Pick Me Up’, ‘Make Believe’ and ‘We Used To Be In Love’ – have introduced a band full of creativity, who mix classic melodicism with a sonic adventurousness.
‘Felt’ was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios with Blossoms and The Coral producer Rich Turvey, London’s Konk Studios with Arcade Fire collaborator Craig Silvey and London’s Voltaire Studios with Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Wolf Alice).
What emerges is a contemporary indie-pop record that drags the listener through the rollercoaster of emotions experienced during the end of one relationship and the beginning of another.
