In a press release, the band said, “Our second album is more or less summed up in the title track ‘Yesteryear’. It’s about reflecting on the past with not only nostalgia but also an element of melancholia ~ all the formative experiences that we absorb growing up both good and bad.
“It’s an album inspired by personal growth, looking back on these experiences, learning from them and moving forward with optimism. In ‘Yesteryear’ we have honed in on that, moving away from overly produced sounds to more organic instrumentation, focused on feeling rather than thinking.”
‘Yesteryear’ will be the follow-up to the pair’s 2018 debut studio album ‘What Comes Next’, which featured the hit singles ‘Get To Know’, featuring Winston Surfshirt, and ‘Talk To Me’ with Tove Styrke.
The forthcoming sophomore album is set to feature the recently released title track as well as ‘Down For You’, a collaborative single featuring Ruel released in January.
