Tell us about your latest release:
“Abigail West” is about yearning for an idealised image of love. It’s more personal than our previous work, as it deals with people and places stemming from a fascination with American culture. Musically it’s a bit of a departure too, with shimmering guitars and soaring strings grounded by propulsive drumming.
