The track tells the story of the universal narrative of love gone sour, but it’s not your average break up the song. The dejected lyrics are contrasted by a steady backbeat and syncopated bass line that make for a sonically uplifting listen, and on first listen heartbreak is certainly not the first theme that springs to mind.
This juxtaposition is what the band specialise in; we heard it first in ‘Lights‘ a few months ago and in ‘Miles‘ before that, and with every release they are honing their skills and articulating themselves more acutely than before. The music is sure synth-pop with an upbeat chorus full of swelling synths and hopping bass rhythms that render all feet into a tapping state.
Lead singer Tommy said that:
“I was penning lyrics in my bedroom, when an argument from the next room became so heated, I couldn’t help but eavesdrop. My housemate was in a seriously toxic relationship. There used to be a lot of hostility in the house… arguing, shouting, tears. The lyrics are taken from that overheard argument.”
