In the video, singer Justin Young admits that it is "flattering" to be the "centre of attention", while guitarist Freddie Cowan adds that the band, who release their debut album in March, are confident they can live up to people's expectations.

"It's not necessarily something that we feel apprehensive about because we've finished our record now and we're really happy with it, so we've done what we feel we wanted to do," Cowan said.
