Produced by Jon Gilmore (The 1975, Pale Waves), the track premiered on triple j earlier this week before hitting streaming services overnight (February 25).

The song drops alongside a music video, which arrived today (February 26). The clip follows a bearded traveller exploring various locations and features appearances from the band members themselves. Watch it below:

Per a press release, lead singer Jack Froggatt explained that the track originated on a writing retreat after the band released their 2019 record, ‘Shadowboxer’.

“We decided to get outta the city and head down to the south coast of Sydney for a writing trip. It was there we wrote the first iteration of ‘MORE’,” he said.

“‘MORE arrived’ on the final day and began as a concept about a character completely delusional with their desire for more

“We started playing around in new time signatures trying to figure out where it fit best, eventually landing on 5/4 which has this feeling of never really resolving and always feeling tense.

“It was such a fun song to write, collecting modern-day problems and putting them into the song. It’s part tongue-in-cheek but was a real awakening in seeing myself in that character.”
