‘The first album was a lot more about relationships, but then the second one is too – but in a different way,’ singer Hannah Reid told NME about their new record. ‘It’s probably about the relationship you have with yourself, rather than one specific other person. The relationship that us three had on the road, and there’s a lot about the meaning of life in general, which is SO lame, but that is what we talk about!’
Guitarist Dan Rothman described it as: ‘less moody than the first record’. ‘It’s maybe less “samey”,’ he said. “We’ve tried to provide more variety.”
‘We’ve expanded on the filmic, cinematic aspect,” added Dot Major in percussion and keys. “That’s maybe something that’s consistent throughout the new album, but in terms of what’s going on in different songs it definitely varies a bit more.’
