We selected this song because it was quite different to the other singles we had released so far. Furthermore, we felt it showed a side of us that people would find interesting and intriguing.
How does this single relate to the rest of the EP?
This song is quite different to all the other tracks in terms of style but still has that underlining link of melody and emotion that is evident in every song on the EP. It takes you in a slightly different direction but still stays close to what we are, which is an indie pop band.
What was the writing process for the song?
The track was written around the original idea of the verse. I came up with the chords one day when I was mucking around with another song. It all just progressed from there. It has ended up quite different from it’s original demo form though. I guess that’s what naturally happens when a song is pushed through the band machine. It comes out sounding quite different at the other end which is always a good thing but not always an easy journey.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
The lyrics of this song is based around the idea that evil in one form or another dwells within us all. We can either act upon it or ignore it but it always rears its ugly head at some point. The song tells the story of two characters, one a psychotic killer and the other a deeply depressed individual who has given up on life and is welcoming death. The song progresses to the point where the two finally meet and the killer takes the life of the other but the other in her desperate time of death decides that she wants to live but only to realise it’s too late.
What would it be like seeing you in person performing this song?
It would be pretty trippy seeing myself onstage and being in the audience at the same time. It would be quite a surreal experience indeed. I’d definitely be my own worse critique though, might even throw a few bottles. But it would be like the best thing ever cause I’m that good, or that’s what people keep telling me 😉
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
I think they could. I like to think of our music as infectiously melodic with tangled simplicity and I think this track hits that pretty well. Although I think it’s a pretty hard task to summarize us in general with just one song but I’m pretty sure if anyone was to hear this song they’d be pretty confident of what the rest of our stuff would sound like hopefully.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so what was the idea behind the video?
Yep we just released the video just recently. The idea behind the video was quite simple. I love horror movies and thought the theme of the song would lend itself nicely to a horror theme. It basically deals with the idea of a zombie infested forest and being chased down by your fears and finally coming face to face with them.

One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
Our motivation behind our music is always enjoyment. We try to create music that is appealing and interesting to us and present in a way that is hopefully engaging and intriguing to others. We always try and keep to the no expectations rule and work as hard as we can to create music that we’re proud of. Everything else that happens as a result is a bonus.
